Based on my observations working with patients for the past 8+ years, I found there are a few recurring conversations I have with patients. They often bring these points up well after the first exam date.

I believe these points to be their unspoken objections or beliefs about their body/ injury. When we believed the world was flat, people didn’t want to sail too far… because of the unspoken “truth” that the world was flat.

I’m going to address the following “truths” patients and the public believe.

Warning: Not all healthcare providers are going to agree with me on these, but many of them will. I’m ok with that. These are my beliefs that I’ve formed through experience, reading research and success with the patients I see.

Here’s a link to the hip video I mentioned:


Here’s the 9 points:

  1. “My XYZ is from my age… I’m just getting too old”
  2. “My problem is from my knots”
  3. “So are you going to ‘work on’ me?”
  4. “My XYZ is out”
  5. “My back pain is from XYZ, posture has nothing to do with my pain”
  6. “My problem is from scar tissue”
  7. “Can we do something to workout my arms?”
  8. “I don’t understand why I’m in pain”
  9. “I have no time to learn about my injury/ pain etc”
