I want to share one tip with you that saved me hours of clinic time.
At the end of each day, I used to create personalized exercise programs for everyone, including pictures, reps, sets and all the details. People liked them but if you’re seeing 10 or more patients a day it’s very time-consuming!
I made one change that gave me all this time back.
I asked patients to bring their phone to each session and spent a few minutes in the appointment videoing the exercise with it while talking through the specifics. They left with all the information they needed and I got to finish on time!
If you’re currently emailing exercise instructions or searching for rehab images then switch to using the patient’s phone. You can thank me later!
Your time is precious and it’s always limited with patients so we’ve put together a great one double bonus which will save you time and help you get great results when you register for Running Repairs Online.
This great bonus comes with patient handouts for Achilles Tendinopathy, Plantar Heel Pain, Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome, ITBS and Patellofemoral Pain. Each handout covers the following:
- What the injury is with a patient-friendly description of the condition
- What may have caused the injury and how to prevent it from happening again
- 3 clear rehab phases to achieve their goals
- Prognosis and likely timescales
- Clear guidance on managing pain and modifying training
- How to improve recovery including 10 top tips on sleep
Plus there’s space to record exercises (if they prefer not to video them).
With these handouts you can talk them through their injury within a session and tell them you’ll be sending them a summary of all the key take home points afterwards. This really helps reassure the patient and gives them all the information they need to get better.
