Rank #2: Playing to DPT Students Strengths with Megan Moran
Megan Moran is a Physical Therapist and Assistant Professor at Marymount University.
Megan shares how she used Clifton StrengthsFinders in DPT education to test if grouping students by various strengths could make them more productive in school, at work, or in their personal lives.
CliftonStrengths is an assessment tool used across different industries to inform individuals of their personal strengths or talents. Individuals are encouraged to leverage their strengths to make them more productive at work or in their personal lives. At MU, we are introducing this to students as they enter the program with hopes they will continue to use their talents throughout their graduate education and as they enter the profession.
The assessment is easily available online, for a minimal fee. Individuals can gain insight as to why they gravitate to certain tasks at work, or why they work well with others. Knowing one’s strength can help an individual choose roles where they will thrive.
- Know your strengths and how others might view the strengths
- Don’t spend most of your time focusing on your weaknesses
- Learn the strengths of those you work with and discuss how your team can best achieve goals

Rank #4: Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapists – Annual Orthopaedic Meeting with Joe Godges
Joe has spent the last 30 years training physical therapy residents and fellows in programs in Southern California, and across the US and around the world in USC affiliated programs.
And, from 2006 to 2017, he served as the editor of the Clinical Practice Guidelines for Common Musculoskeletal Conditions for the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy and the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy.
What a participant will get by participating in the AOPT meeting in Minneapolis in April
- Summary of what makes this meeting different than other continuing professional education events
- Quality of the presenters – actual authors of the cutting edge science match with master clinicians who were also authors of the recent clinical practice guidelines
- Small group – hands-on sessions – an opportunity to interact in a face to face manner with the presenters
- Leading-edge content – integrating science into practice with a focus on inter-regional relations
- There are two unique practice areas of physical therapists.
- One is making clinical decisions on and providing interventions for our clients based upon movement/pain relations
- The other is making clinical decisions and providing interventions for our clients based upon inter-regional relationships
- We need to own these areas.
- This the presentations and discussions in this meeting are focused on making this improving the ability of the participants in these two areas of practice for the Head, Neck, Thorax, and Shoulder regions.
- Clinical success in physical therapy for our clients with common musculoskeletal disorders is highly related to correctly determining the physical impairments most related to the clients reported concern or limitation
- Then, determine the intervention and the dosage of that intervention is critical to be therapeutic
- Make incorrect decisions or poor treatment implementation results increased likelihood of chronic disablement in our clients. The stakes are high. The responsibility is high.

Rank #5: Nutrition! It’s in your PT Scope of Practice!
We talk to PT and Registered Dietician Patrick Berner about PT scope of practice and nutrition.
Believe it or not nutrition is something well within the scope of practice of a physical therapy practitioner. Something that the APTA fully supports and of recent fully supports the collaboration/referral to registered dietitians. The degree of use will of course also depend on practitioner’s local practice acts.
Why does this matter?
Because the physical therapy profession needs to become more holistic in nature and the nutrition is a huge part of it.
Nutrition is within the PT scope.
State practice acts makes a difference.
Know the limitations of your “personal scope.”

Rank #12: #TBT Adam Meakins on Manual Therapy
The name Adam Meakins always causes a stir in the profession of Physiotherapy (Physical Therapy for us Yanks). We caught up with Adam last year at this time and wanted to bring back his thoughts on manual therapy. At the time that was the topic of discussion on the social media platforms and true to form Adam didn’t hold back.
A year later Adam is actually facing some increased scrutiny from his UK governing body about his word selection on social media.
We hope for a great outcome where everyone wins in this situation.

If you’re out there, make sure to say, hi, always great to have this guy on the show. Danny comes on the program. Dude wrote a book we get into what it’s called. It’s an explicit title. Very naughty. We may get to play with the belief out button. A few times in this episode. And just so you know, we mentioned at during the episode how to win it or give it away copies of his book plus a chance to get a one on one phone call. If you’re thinking about jumping into biz PT opened a cash practice much like Danny and the people he works with. So stay tuned info to win that book in the consultation. Call all in the episode first round is brought to you by Owens recovery. Science a single source for PT’s looking for certification in personalized blood flow restriction rehabilitation training, Johnny and his team. They’re on the forefront. Doing the research testing releasing the papers about this stuff there. The goldstein. Wondered check them out online at Owens recovery. Science dot com. Broadcasting physical therapists around the world is this is the PT past. May I introduce to introduce you. Here’s your host physical therapist Jimmy MacKay back on the show, host of the podcast and founder of athletes potential in Atlanta and Decatur Georgia. Adel comeback show, ma’am. Yes. Jimmy. Thank you so much for having me on again it easily my favorite podcast to be on good job of like interviewing people and just so like team listen to south you, and it’s also cool. I don’t know if I have a record in anything else. But when I told my I’m gonna tell my wife about this. And I she’s gonna find me more tractive. Honestly, that’s what I bring table. You bring that. Mabel up here. More attractive, but we gotta add something else to your resume. I mean, we should also let people know you do business coaching specifically within the world of physical therapy. But now, author I’ll be honest, Pat myself on the back when I read a book, and you went out, and you wrote a book. Yeah. For somebody that also I have probably about fifty books that I’m halfway through have way through media. And I told my wife I was like, but if you add up the fifty percent of all of them, I’m through twenty five. Good. That’s pretty good. Yeah. It’s pretty solid. I just quick to kind of move on to something else. So the fact that actually sat down and for eight months put together my thought process on what I’ve learned in business. So for in particular in the cash practice realm is an interesting to me that actually you know, was able to finish it. But also, it’s it’s something that I think that will be there and my kids can pick it up and not granted the titles of extreme. But they’re no they’re no strangers to f word in the house, by the way, they they can use it in context, and they’re five and seven I mean, they can read and they can see like, oh, man. Mom and dad like, wow, they did this thing. And you know, they started this business. And I kinda talk about how I got started. I have kind of like an interesting story about how we left the military and went into business that we knew nothing about and some of the mistakes we made along the way which is a lot and hopefully people can learn from that. And then we really dive into stages of a cash practice, which I think are important in. No because I look at like martial arts. You know, you don’t just go one day and say, okay, I’m just going to get a black belt. You may think that, but you know, you go and you. For a while. And then you get a blue belt, and you get a purple belt. And then you have these stages along the way this show that you’re improving your learning new things, and you should celebrate those. So for me, I thought it was important to define the stage of cash practice, then to go through the two main kind of linchpins that I see within the business, which is sales and marketing, which you have a conversation about that in terms of plenty of other things besides just entrepreneurship, but if you’re gonna nose to skills, you’ll get better outcomes clinically you’re gonna have more business than you can handle. And you’re worth a lot more to clinic. Even if you decide to stay there. I think it’s something that will be helpful to a profession. Hopefully, so the name of the book is insurance, and I do like how you UP Gede it for the cover for the kids. It is used the asterisk in there. Let’s start you said took eight nine months to write it. What what got stuck in your mind? What were you like, you know, what people need to know this? I’m gonna put it all down one paper where was that driving force? I’m fortunate enough to like be able to talk to a lot of universities. I have friends that are professor at different ones. And they’re they’re interested. Enough. What I’m doing to be able to have me tell a console with their with their students and talk about business, and I tend to get a lot of same questions over and over again. And I also hear a lot of the same frustrations from new graduates and what I hear and this even this weekend. I was in this drilling coarser Atlanta, one of the guys there six months, I was practicing kinda describes the exact norm that tend to hear from people that are in particular fit, the mold that I like to treat in which is more performance based like I have a background training conditioning where you manual therapists as well. So use our hands to create a symptom change, and then we use our edition principles to create long-term positive improvements in their health and wellness that make sure is really effective, but you take something like that. And you throw him into clinic where they’re seeing, you know, twenty plus people a day, and they’re primarily work com Medicare population, and it’s only a matter of time before they start to get really frustrated with their career path.
