    From CMCJ OA issues to Shark Tank... every shark was swooning!

    From CMCJ OA issues to Shark Tank... every shark was swooning!

    Barbara Heilman is an OT and hand therapist who spent her career adapting equipment and creating orthosis for her patients.  When she became a grandma she solved her issue with not being able to get her granddaughters car seat open due to CMCJ OA and created an adaptive piece of equipment that worked great.  Her daughter Becca Davision recognized that what her mom had created could be used by so many people and decided that they would together create the UnbuckleMe system.    Send an email into info@handtherapy.com and we will provide a code if you or anyone you know could use an Unbuckle me and to learn more.  LOVE this team and really had a blast chatting with them.

    Protocols YES? or No? Thoughts from A New CHT and Strategies For New Practitioners

    Protocols YES? or No? Thoughts from A New CHT and Strategies For New Practitioners

    A casual discussion with Minh Quan Tran OT, CHT from Canada about Protocols.  Minh reviews how protocols are excellent for therapists who do not have a mentor to rely on.  Protocols don't take into account all the variables which is a challenge and if you understand tissue healing and how structures heal you can determine a regime based on these concepts.   Minh shares his experience with an array of cases, how he deals with being a young practitioner and reminds people to seek out concepts and to not get hung up on protocols.

Amazing!

I just started listening about 2 weeks ago and am loving it! I have been practicing in hand therapy for 2 years, right out of school. This information is terrific especially as I study for my CHT. Thanks!!!!

Thank you Susan and all of your guests!

I came across this podcast on a drive a couple months ago and intended to write a review immediately. Unfortunately, I forgot but now have some extra time to write my thoughts. I found this podcast to be extremely helpful, relevant, educational, and inspiring. Sometimes, we get in what I might call a “rut”, we are we find ourselves treating patients doing our jobs but not having the time to look into new research, evidence, and new practices in our field. This podcast is a great learning tool to encourage a spiral into learning more about a specific topic. I highly recommend! Thank you for creating this Susan! 🙌🏼
