00:00 DR. LINDSEY HUGHEY, PT, DPT
Good morning, PT on Ice Daily Show. How's it going? Welcome to the PT on Ice clinical podcast. Today is clinical Tuesday. I am so pumped to be with you all. I'm Dr. Lindsay Huey. I guess that would help if I actually introduced myself. Today, I am going to chat with you about how we let freedom reign in our patients with osteoarthritis. Last clinical Tuesday, I hopped on here and I wrapped on the underlying battle of systemic inflammation that we are fighting with these folks with hip and knee away and the importance of treating them with MEDS, which stands for mindfulness, exercise, diet and sleep. Check in for more information there from last week on what MEDS and how we can unpack that and prescribe it for our patients. This week, this clinical Tuesday, we're going to dive a little deeper into the trenches of battle by really discussing how we can impact our folks with osteoarthritis. Whether it's the shoulder, hip, knee, hip and knee are more common things we'll treat from an extremity management perspective. But this battle involves a lot more than manual therapy and exercise. It actually involves less. Today, I will discuss how shifting our patient's mindset and behaviors really helps fight that underlying systemic inflammation battle that our patients have. But before I tell you and dive in a little bit about that, I'd love to share with you some courses extremity management has coming up. So our next upcoming course is July 15th, 16th. So in a couple of weeks, we'll be in Holmes Beach, Florida. I've hopped on a couple Tuesdays and just let you all know what beautiful beach that is. It still ranks the top beach I've been to so far. Crystal blue water, I'll be with Melissa Reed out there. There's lots of spots left. So join us if you want to do some summer extremity management learning. And then July 26, 23, I'll be in Simi Valley, that course is now to 15. There's probably only three to five spots left. So if you're on the fence, definitely sign up for that course. And then onward Madison is July 29th and 30th. So lots of opportunities to hop in in July. And then in August, we are going to be in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and then the 12th and 13th. And then August 19th, 20th, we will be in Fremont, Nebraska. So be on the lookout if you're on the fence for signing in just because these courses are starting to fill up. And then other courses in the beginning of fall in September and October. We hope to see you out there. All right, let's dive into the topic at hand. So last week, we really last Tuesday established that hip and knee osteoarthritis is becoming one of the leading causes of global disability. So worldwide, this is affecting our society. And there are so many challenging aspects of treating these folks. The battle is not just in modulating their pain. It's not just an increasing range of motion and addressing strength deficits, you know, in their hip and in their knee. And it's not just about prescribing meds. And I really made a solid case for that last week. That mindfulness, exercise, diet and sleep
