Marni Larkin came to AC Health having tried almost every other solution on the market – and all of them had failed both her and her patients at Gyrotonic Manhasset Physical Therapy.
In her specialty of chronic pain relief, it was imperative that her patients keep moving and complying with their exercises – in the studio and at home.
“If patients don’t keep moving, then they fall into this self-fulfilling prophecy,” Ms. Larkin explains. “They say to themselves, ‘I can’t do this exercise because of this reason, this pain. If only that were gone!’ “What they don’t realize, is that that reason – that excuse – will only go away if they move in the right way. That self-limitation means they’ll never get well, until they start complying with their exercises.”
Ms. Larkin had seen the best success with compliance if she offered her patients customized exercise videos and instructions as part of their HEPs. “That way, my therapy is patient-centered, not expert-down,” she says.
Despite this discovery, she could not for the life of her find a decent delivery platform.
