Is “Pretty Good” Good Enough?

Today I’d like to share a cautionary tale we see very commonly in people who get injured but are doing really well with treatment and recovering nicely …

The person is starting to feel really good and they have returned to most of the activities that their pain was keeping the from. They are back on the trail running, playing with their kids around the house, or even back on the golf course playing the game they love.

At this point, when at a PT session, they will often say they “still feel it a little” but it is not much of a problem. This is where trouble can begin…

We know from experience that “pretty good” is not good enough, but at this point many will decide that the pain is is so minor, they don’t really need to continue treatment till it’s 100% gone.

I’ll explain exactly why this can cause big problems and cost them a lot more money than if they’d just completed that last 1 or 2 treatments and attained 100% recovery, but first let me tell my own story of making this same type of mistake.

I have a great example of my own experience with this when I was younger. I was in Mexico doing some work with local indigenous villages helping them build a school. I ate some local cuisine that I was assured was not washed with their water.  Read more

And unfortunately many of them thought they would “just have to live with it” and occasionally be laid up by it … until they found us.
