Tatz 醫生是一個好人，也想醫好你。 他會多說，人愈用腦多，身體就愈繄。他多強調，
Dr Tatz’s style seems like a mix of Eastern and Western philosophies. He takes a holistic approach like Chinese doctors, but he also uses modern technology and doesn’t rely on tradition totally.
I hurt my wrists and forearms from playing the violin. I had been to a physical therapist and found that their prescriptive methods of stretching and ultrasound useless, and Dr Tatz understood completely. The moment he looked at me he already said that my whole body was tight. I was already aware of this, and I already had a suspicion that this affected a lot of what I did in life. But, no one (including previous physical therapists, fitness instructor etc) had ever addressed this for me.
Dr Tatz heals you hands-on, massaging you out and loosening your muscles. Our first appointment he didn’t do anything to my wrists or forearms; he said he didn’t want to heal me in a day, and he worked on my core, front and back. He also taught me some super mild “exercises”, which were sort of micro movements that involved shaking/twisting left and right fairly quickly. The last 15-20 minutes, you are almost always put under some magnetic machine to “sleep”. Our next appointments, he loosened my shoulders which are super tight, and my legs, etc, and gave me more similar exercises .On our third appointment, he massaged out my wrists (it wasn’t painless), and over the last 6 months my wrists haven’t felt better. But, as Dr Tatz says, “We have a big project.” He wants me to come for 20 sessions over 8 weeks.
Dr Tatz is a nice man, and he wants to get you better. He says often, that the more you use your brain, the tighter your body. He emphasizes that our body naturally knows how to move. And, he also says, that a loose body is better than a strong body.
It was the Ancient Greek Doctor and Founder of Western Medicine, Hippocrates, who first introduced Physical Therapy as a form of healing. But it wasn’t until the 1970’s that Western Medicine would formally allow Physical Therapists to have their own practices. Before then, most Physical Therapy was done in hospitals.
Alternative therapies these days are referred to as just about anything outside Western Medicine and hospitals, such as Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Naturopathic, Chiropractic. The list goes on. But lost somewhere between medicine and alterative is Physical Therapy: PT shouldn’t be overlooked, as it is one of the true and natural modalities there is.
A skilled Physical Therapist can examine, evaluate and treat patients from chronic illnesses to severe and mild injuries. Physical Therapists are known to reduce or eliminate pain. Benefits of PT can include recovering from falls, injuries and fractures; recovering from strokes; managing vascular conditions including diabetes; heart and lung problems; headaches and migraines; age related limitations including arthritis, facial nerve paresis, fibromyalgia, gastritis, insomnia; as well as ankle, knee, back, disc, shoulder, neck and TMJ pain. The list goes on and on.
My aches and pains have been steadily diminishing since seeing Shmuel Tatz, PT, PhD for the first time but they hadn’t vanished completely – yet. Only because it’s been a long and winding road of minor injuries over the decades. This being my tenth visit, I didn’t know what to expect since there are a variety of problem areas in my small frame. Tatz, usually a man of little words, surprised me when he sat down and spoke at length before my treatment began. He was insistent that I understand, “People don’t always want to hear what their real problem is.” I was a little worried he had something unpleasant to tell me about my own health, but I listened.
First he told me that sometimes people have psychological problems and not physical problems. “I always tells my patients the truth but sometimes they get upset with me.” Very recently, he told one of his patients that she might want to consider talking to a professional about her emotional problems; she left in tears. He explained in cases of the mind, doctors such as bestselling author Dr. John Sarno are very good at helping people understand that they can heal themselves by addressing underlying emotional issues. He also noted that can only happen if there is not an underlying physical problem. He was very concerned about this patient of his.
