Feel Good Scale

Feel Good Scale JJW 2017

First presented during Physiocouch event Rennes 2017. Based on the idea that when we really want to elaborate our focus within therapy towards positive, possible and doable directions, we might need add  “feel good” focus next to a “pain” focus. This might help also to monitor increase in stead of decrease.. Off course not always suitable, but why not add it to our lines of thought and repertoire.


Global Physiotherapy

The world of physiotherapy is huge, way bigger then our own countries. It is part of  the globe and as such a part of global health. Which in itself means we should start to talk about GLOBAL PHYSIOTHERAPY as part of global health . Physiotherapy as the craft of facilitating people with finding both momentarily and sustainable solutions for movement related health questions. Off course not by forcing us into other peoples lives, cultures and countries but to explore and see if our professional “solutionism” can be of added value.  We can assume that most of the movement related health questions occur within global areas with a low physiotherapist density (WHO Rehabilitation 2030) .


Being conscious of Global health and Global physiotherapy as such, means we have to add an important aspect to our professional identity; Global Physiotherapy.

Luckily there are already a number of sources which can provide us with more information concerning this topic:

Global Phyio podcasts

Great Physiotherapy Podcasts

Dear colleagues,

As (upcoming) physiotherapists we love to stay updated and to keep learning from and with each other. In order to do so we (sometimes) need new information and / or challenges to our own line of inquiry. Both help us to construct new knowledge, evolve our reasoning, increase our competence and helps us to adapt in uncertain situations. To continue this road we are in need of input. And we are lucky, some of our colleagues constructed great podcasts with splendid resources concerning MSK (musculoskeletal) topics.






Motor learning

As we all know motor learning is a tremendous important part of physiotherapy. As our major concern is movement we are actually constant facilitating a patient in her or his motor learning. We use its concepts continuously both implicit and explicitly. Though as always with concepts it keeps a struggle to apply and maybe even remember what they ar all about. Lucky us, other people constructed already playlists with essential parts convert in short knowledge clips.

below you will find such a playlist. Although placed within the context of sports its application can be transferred to all field of physiotherapy


As we can see within motor learning different elements can be taken in to account. One of those elements are types of practice.

Types of practice

As types of practice gives a kind of overview how we can practice. It is off course useful to grab a bit of understanding concerning possible learning possibilities. The stages of learning by Fitts and Posner are an example of much used theory on stages of learning.

Theory of “Stages of Learning”

Within learning feedback, in all its possible forms, plays an important role which we should never underestimate. A conscious choice about the use of specific feedback type in relation with situation, client, environment, task  and phase of learning can be of great influence on the progession.

Types of Feedback

Feedback in stages of learning


A specific theory in motor learning is the Schema Theory as described by Richard Schmidt

Schema theory

Next to all  above knowledge clips Gentiles taxonomy of motor skills can be very helpful to classify observed skills and can as such be off help formulating physiotherapeutic diagnosis, goals, evaluation and treatment plans
