3 things I have learned in 2019

As the year draws to a close I like to reflect on the things I have learned over the last 12 months.

Assessment is more important than treatment.

If we aren’t reassessing are clients limitations how do we know what’s working and what isn’t? I also feel it’s important to assess alignment before assessing movement. If you don’t have a system to check alignment first then checking movement is limited and sometimes inaccurate.

I have used and adapted many systems from many different people and schools of thought as everybody is different and not every system is a fit for us all.

Focus on the quality of movement not the quantity of movement.

If you focus on generally increasing mobility many times the body takes the path of least resistance and you just make the loose areas looser and neglect the real problem. I have come across clients who have overstretched an area like the back or shoulder to gain mobility and simply getting them th stop helps. It’s addition by subtraction.

Live life at the right tempo.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of of equating being busy, productive and improving personal finances as corrilating to happiness. I have been trying to reduce my stress and workload by being more organised but found I was just filling in the space I had created by taking on more workload, my pace and tempo never changed. Don’t get my wrong you have to get ahead by out working others and always constantly improving skills and learning. The thing is don’t forget the things that are really important. Take time to meet with friends, visit the places you always wanted to see or simply read a book that has nothing to do with your work.

So that’s what I learned in 2019. I am looking forward to learning ever more in 2020.
