PT Elevated: It’s All About Relationships with Adriaan Louw

December 8, 2021 • Clinical Management • Kory Zimney, JJ Thomas, Paul Mintken

Welcome back to PT Elevated! On the brand new season we are broadening our topics to include more researchers but still focusing on topics that you can use in your clinic every day.

On the first episode, Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, joins our hosts Kory Zimney, Paul Mintken and JJ Thomas to discuss what else but pain science. Adriaan talks how he was introduced to pain science and how he uses pain science in the clinic alongside every other intervention that he would use.

Adriaan Louw’s Clinical Pearl: I would tell my younger self as a new graduate is that it’s all about relationships. If you build relationships with referral sources and I tell a patient about pain, it’s less likely that the doctor will get mad because they know who I am. With patients it’s about relationships, therapeutic alliance and trust. It’s about relationships with your fellow therapists and colleagues. It’s not just about fixing things; the relationship part is so important.
