What is modern patient education?

Modern Patient Education is part of The Eclectic Approach Series. First, we updated OMPT with Modern Manual Therapy. Then, we took on loading and Practical Blood Flow Restriction Therapy/Training with Modern Strength Training. Now are using the same renown Eclectic strategies to patient education and empowerment.

Patient education and positive interaction are the keys to recovery. Passive treatments like manual therapy, needling, etc work in the clinic, but the effects are temporary. Education and behavioral change are the keys to lasting functional improvement.

It's not what treatments you apply in the clinic, it's what you empower the patients with to take home that makes the difference!
