You're Not the Arbiter of Your Patient's When, Why or How

Have you ever felt frustrated your patient wasn't ready to make a change? Didn't prioritize what you thought was most important? Or ignored your recommendations for their plan of care?

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


Continuing our 'You're Not the Arbiter' series, we discuss how we can take it personally when a patient isn't ready to do what we suggest or change according to our timeline.

In this 'sode we share some of the most pivotal stories of Nicole's career and how to set aside our own judgment and ego when it comes to our patients so we can truly hold space for their healing journey.

Do we have a right be frustrated if someone doesn't progress according to our timeline? Or doesn't have the same motivation we think is most important? Or doesn't follow our guidance?

Ultimately, it's not about us. Being able to be non-judgmental of our patients is a skill and part of our growth as clinicians. Check out the full 'sode for all the details!

As Nicole said on the full 'sode of the topic...
