… you can’t let anything stop you.  Ever.

– Theresa’s mom (from Warrior:  A Memoir)

 

 

The important thing for me is I’m having fun doing [physical therapy].  I can’t go into a career anymore where I’m just going through the motions, and having an insurance company tell me what to do.  Nope.  Sorry, that’s not gonna happen to me.

– Theresa Larson

 

In need of some inspiration?  Get it right here.  Theresa Larson is our guest for this interview.  Theresa is currently a private practice owner in San Diego, CA.  She is also co-creator of The Low Back Fix, a website program designed to help the average patient with lower back pain overcome their pain and regain their function.  Theresa has written an auto-biography titled Warrior:  A Memoir, where she chronicles events throughout her life that have led her to where she is today (side note – I read this book prior to our conversation and it is a worthwhile read!).  In addition to all of these things, Theresa has been an instructor for MobilityWOD, a program developed by Kelly Starrett (author of Becoming a Supple Leopard).  She has quite a few other accomplishments that would take a long time to describe, but I can list a couple more:  United States Marine Corps second lieutenant and collegiate/professional softball pitcher.  See what I mean… inspired yet?  If not, just listen below…

 

Your brain has perceived this movement as a threat for a long time.  You can rewire that.  Let’s slow you down.  Let’s teach you how to breathe.  Let’s load the proper joints effectively, and over time… you will change… and you will be more functional.

That’s what our job is, to empower people to continue moving.  Versus disempowering them and telling them they can’t.
