The Curiosity Cohort

A Community for Physios Creating Person-Centered Care

Choosing to be curious is choosing to be vulnerable because it requires us to surrender to uncertainty. We have to ask questions, admit to not knowing, risk being told that we shouldn’t be asking, and, sometimes, make discoveries that lead to discomfort.” – Brene Brown 

I think all clinicians want to know what they don’t know. The great ones choose to stay curious. The Curiosity Cohort is for anyone who wants to create person-centered care, enhance their soft skills, and dive into evidence to support those in pain.

The Clinical Curiosity Community is for Physios who aren’t afraid to admit they don’t have it all figured out.

  • We are a community that values questions over techniques.
  • We are people who know that physical therapy is not about us; rather, it is about serving the person in front of us.
  • We want freedom to explore, engage, and create a practice that puts the patient first.
  • We will dive into questions, experiences, concepts, and evidence around serving the whole person in your care and what it means to continue to build clinical curiosity.

This framework can serve Sports, Ortho, and Pelvic Health clinicians. You do not need to be a clinic owner or have a cash practice. You can be a new grad or a seasoned clinician — because we are all learning and growing together.

I would be thrilled for you to join us and create a network of Physios changing lives one person at a time.

CO2 Tolerance in Physical Therapy

Empower your patients to recover faster through breath work.

Do you tell your patients to breathe or take a deep breath but the words get lost in translation?

Breathing is a powerful contributor to healing and recovery, yet breath work isn’t all that practical at times. 

If you want to know how to influence biomechanics, cognition, and the nervous system with one main tool for your patients, then incorporate breathing into your practice in a way that gives your patients real-time tools to meet them where they are. 

Watch this webinar for education on how to incorporate breathing for orthopedic patients, persistent pain patients, patients dealing with stress and anxiety, and athletes wanting to improve their performance.

One’s ability to maintain physical exercise is related to their body’s sensitivity to Carbon Dioxide. Learn why this matters, who can benefit, and how to incorporate it into your practice. 

It was a really informative and well thought out webinar. The clinical application aspect is amazing. You put the clinical testing in such an organized fashion that I can easily take it to the clinic. I can’t wait to implement the Co2 tolerance test into my assessments.

I’ve been trying running with nasal only breathing, it is actually making recovery easier and I have less muscle soreness! Thank you for sharing online, I never thought about that aspect or how much it would make a difference.
