June 16, 2022 • Practice Leadership • Larry Benz

Join host Dr. Larry Benz, nationally recognized for his expertise in private practice physical therapy and occupational medicine alongside NEW co-hosts Tim Reynolds and Bryan Guzski. From Evidence In Motion, The Practice Leadership Podcast’s Movers and Shakers Season will go straight to the source, asking the industry heavyweights about research, social media, what technology challenges lie ahead, their seasoned advice form the clinic floor, and where to take action in advocacy.

On the sixth episode, Larry Benz, Tim Reynolds and Bryan Guzski are joined by Dr. Karen Litzy, PT, DPT, a licensed physical therapist, international speaker, owner of, “Karen Litzy Physical Therapy.” Through her work as a physical therapist, she has helped thousands of people, including Fortune 500 CEOs, royalty, and celebrities, overcome painful conditions, recover from surgery, and feel stronger than ever before. As the host Healthy Wealthy & Smart, of a top 200 podcast, on Apple Podcasts, she has interviewed influencers in the worlds of health, medicine and entrepreneurship.

Based on her years of physical therapy experience Karen’s says her advice to clinicians is to, “Learn how to say no and stay open minded. When I say to say no to things it is because when I first started in physical therapy, I thought I had to say yes to everything, no matter the cost. You realize over time that saying yes to everything means you have had to say no to other parts of your career or life that could have been important. We are always taking a path and if you are always saying yes without evaluating whatever the opportunity is, you are saying no to something else.”

Karen says we must be realistic when we set expectations with people dealing with chronic pain. So, people don’t feel like they must go out to a million people to understand their condition or understand their condition.

Listen and learn more about what being a concierge physical therapist is to Karen, how she manages her schedule, having her own podcast and practice as well as her thoughts on post professional continuing education for physical therapists and more!
