Setting the Stage
Based on the interactions that I’ve had over the years with other physical therapists (and between my friends and colleagues, there’s been a lot) I’m comfortable making a general statement that therapists see the benefit in their patients having self-efficacy. I would agree that this is vital.
Is there’s a bigger passivity inducer than ultrasound? Do you suppose a laser treatment sets the stage for self-efficacy? Why do our clinics remain filled with modalities that foster the very attitude that we hope to alleviate?
Do our actions match our rhetoric?
