Dr. Schiebert also works in the hospital and emergency department evaluating psych crisis patients.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Ann Schiebert discuss the following:

  1. Today we are going to talk about the opioid epidemic and teens. How did you become interested in this topic?
  2. What are opioids or opiates?
  3. How do opioids effect brain development in a teen?
  4. How do we keep our teens safe from opioids?
  5. What should we do for pain instead of taking prescription pain killers?

Dr. Ann Schiebert is a psychologist in the Emergency Department (ED) at the medical center of one of the country’s most respected major HMO’s. There, she evaluates for safety, determines types of treatments, assesses capacity and cognitive impairment, and provides feedback and support for families of patients in the ED. In addition, Dr. Schiebert also works in the medical center’s Chemical Dependency Department where she treats patients challenged by trauma, chemical dependency, codependency and dual diagnosis.

Ann has an excellent success rate in helping families turn their situations around, and she is highly sought after for her work. She finds it rewarding to facilitate patients in discovering their wonderful, authentic selves, and getting them back to a healthy mindset. Another of Dr. Schiebert’s area of expertise is helping people in unhappy romantic relationships investigate how they got in their current situation, how to reconsider the “path to romance,” and how to create happier long-term relationships.

Her teaching experience pertaining to Clinical Skills and Psychopathology during graduate school gave Ann an ability to interact with a variety of audiences and to be comfortable doing so. As a psychologist, she uses this “gift” to teach groups of between thirty and forty patients on the topics of communication, how to work a program of recovery and healthy relationships.

Ann has penned a series of books titled Let’s Make a Contract. She has four in the series thus far, having to do with getting teens through substance abuse, getting them through high school and beyond, getting adults through unhappy romantic relationships, and her most recent, getting your teen past the opioid epidemic. She’s been up close and personal to all of those matters in her own life. If she were a member of a tribe, her special role would be healer, and rightfully so.

In her spare time Ann enjoys traveling to Europe. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and her two ragamuffin kittens, Biscuit and Teddy. She is the mother of three adult children.

Chris Tutt, a physical therapists and Co-CEO of ProActive Physical Therapy Specialists serving Oregon and Washington with 14 clinics specializing in musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain and rehabilitation of athletic injures joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Physical Therapy Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Chris Tutt discuss the following:

  1. What’s the difference between Physical Therapy and other practices like chiropractic care?
  2. This is a very versatile field – you treat people recovering from surgeries, athletes, people get back to work, MS patients and even sometimes to lose enough weight to have a life-saving surgery. How does a patient choose a physical therapist?
  3. “PT over Pills” is a new initiative the your practice is advocating – what does that mean?
  4. PT as prevention – do you’re saying people don’t need to be in pain to see at PT?
  5. Your clinics are trialing a new virtual reality program to combat chronic pain – tell me more about that.

TIP: Chris will recommend the best practice stretch for back pain Lower back pain effects millions of Americans each year. I enjoy this exercise because the highest number of people can be helped by it. Think about the last time when you hurt your back. You probably moved around all stiff, kept your back straight, and it felt better. Using these same techniques in preventive manner you can protect your back when engaging in strenuous activities as well as when your back is hurting. Imagine that someone is going to slug you in the stomach. Now, I don't get into fights but this really works! If someone is going to slug you in the stomach what are you going to do? You're going to tighten up your stomach. By tightening you stomach, with tightens your oblique muscles on the sides of your trunk, which in turn tightens an area of thick tissue in your back called your thoracolumbar fascia. This helps to create a natural back brace enabling you to use your muscles to provide support for your back giving you more core strength for dynamic activities as well as to stabilize your back after an injury.


Chris Tutt, PT, MBA, is a physical therapist and co-CEO of ProActive Physical Therapy Specialists.

Chris completed his undergraduate degree at Oregon State University and his Master of Physical Therapy degree from at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles/Chapman University and his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Troy University in Troy, Alabama.

His areas of specialization include TMJ/TMD dysfunction, work conditioning, physical/functional capacity evaluations, and industrial rehabilitation. He is often referred to as "The Body Mechanic" for his love of helping people recover from their injures. Outside of the clinic he enjoys cycling, weight lifting, flying, hiking, camping, taking his 6 ft telescope into the countryside to explore galaxies and planets, and spending time with his wife and teenage daughters.

Physical Therapy can heal the world!

Physical Therapy can heal the world!

June 22, 2019

 

Alice_Holland_1_.jpg

 

Alice Holland, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Director of Stride Strong Physical Therapy in Portland, Oregon. Her clinics, one in Hillsboro and another in Beaverton, provides outpatient physical therapy to adults who have muscle, joint and skeletal injuries as well as helping patients with post-operative rehab joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Physical Therapy Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Alice Holland discuss the following:

  1. "Physical Therapy can heal the world." That's a strong statement. Why do you believe this?
  2. What do you think threatens the physical therapy profession today?
  3. What sets your company, Stride Strong Physical Therapy, apart from all other physical therapy clinics?
  4. Tell me about the your top accomplishments as a physical therapist?
  5. When should patients seek the help of a physical therapist like you and your team?

Dr. Alice Holland, PT, DPT is a graduate of University of Southern California and has been treating adults of all ages and all backgrounds with muscle and joint injuries since 2007. Since then, she has been a huge advocate for the physical therapy profession, regularly hosting community outreach events and educating the public on the power of physical therapy to regain their health.

Her experience in treating patients of all walks of life has been extensive. Having guided countless patients in their recovery from back, neck, hip and knee surgeries to treating injured workers and helping them on their continuum of returning to full duty; to treating injured athletes and runners back to their sport, Alice acquired a deep understanding of the body and how it moves.

In 2012, Alice created Stride Stride Physical Therapy of Portland, Oregon. In 2017 after the success of her first clinic, she expanded her practice into a further satellite clinic, Stride Strong Physical Therapy of Hillsboro. Her company's mission statement is simple: Give patients the healthcare that they deserve. Therefore, patient appointments are held at 45 minutes to 1 hour long, one-on-one with a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Alice and her team at Stride Strong PT believe in a multi-modality approach in taking care of their patients. Firstly, physical therapists identify patients' disorders from watching their postures and movement, then treat affected joints with manual therapy and massage therapy, and finally guide and cue them with exercise therapy and movement corrections so patients can learn to use their bodies effectively with stability and less pain. From patients who have trouble picking up their laundry, to patients who are struggling with kicking soccer balls, Alice and Stride Strong physical therapists strive to get to the bottom of each patient's movement disorder - and therefore, relieve pain at its source.
