Body Positive Physical Therapy & Health Coaching
Today’s episode is all about a weight-neutral approach to physical therapy and healthcare. Lisa and Kathryn discuss all the insidious ways diet culture has made its way into healthcare and how we can provide better care to people across the size spectrum. They also touch on how humans are always adaptive, at any size, and blaming weight for pain and injury is never the answer.
