The Story Behind the Red Cedar Physical Therapy Way:
Twenty years ago I was working with a lady who had problems with her balance. I jokingly told her that I wished I could string her from the ceiling like a puppet so we could do more fun things that were challenging while keeping her safe. Holding onto a gait belt and preventing a fall went against everything I learned in sports medicine.
Our bodies respond to the demands we place on them. Ever since I have been a physical therapist, I have been cheating every single patient by under-delivering on my services in the area of improving balance confidence. Keeping people too safe does not allow them to feel an almost fall nor does it help their bodies learn how to respond to an almost fall.
Feeling that scary feeling of falling and learning how to respond is what it takes to improve balance confidence. This year is the year I decided to go for what I know to be the best way to improve balance confidence. The love and support of my family, along with a little bit of courage, has helped make this vision possible.
