You Have the Worst [insert body part here] I've Ever Seen!

“You Have the Worst [insert body part here] I’ve Ever Seen!”

Have you ever been told “You have the worst spine I’ve ever seen!” Or “You have so much arthritis in your knees, I’m surprised you’re still walking.”

In this video I recorded with Dr. Derek Nielsen of Kaizen Physical Therapy, we talk about how this just isn’t the case.

We hear things like this from our patients every week.

If it were really true, then we would only hear this once or twice a year. Instead what I think is happening is that a well-meaning health professional is telling you this in hopes they you will feel better about your pain and symptoms.

The truth is, they don’t understand pain and the way the body works mechanically, because if they knew the truth, they would change what they say.

When patients hear statements like this, it cements in their brain that they need to stop moving or they will get worse. It creates a helplessness in people. It takes away your control over your health.

The focus becomes on the diagnosis and not the human’s potential for living an amazing life. Arthritis, a herniated disc or a torn rotator cuff do not in any way mean you can’t or shouldn’t use or move those parts of the body. The fact is, a majority of people without any pain or symptoms, when given an MRI, will have these findings on their scans.

We have helped 100’s people who, like you, have been told those exact same words, return to being fit, active and healthy.

We get them back to functioning. What is functioning? These are the things that are most important in your life. Maybe it’s going to CrossFit, playing basketball, taking care of your family or even something as simple as having dinner with your spouse.

So, if you’ve been told that “you have worst ____insert problem area or condition here______ I’ve ever seen” we want you to reach out to us. We want to give you an opportunity for hope.
