Will, Eric and Nick indulge in conversation with special guest Dr. Steve Karas to gain a worldly perspective on PT, healthcare and making a difference in peoples lives.

 

Steve Karas, PT, DSc, CMPT, OCS, ATC is a faculty member at Chatham University where he teaches orthopedics and the spine, and maintains consistent clinical practice. He obtained his Physical Therapy Doctorate from Andrews University along with a certification from The North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT). His current research includes grant-funded study of techniques and outcomes of thoracic spine manual therapy. He has presented nationally and internationally on these topics. Dr. Karas is a member of the AAOMPT research committee & education special interest group, a reviewer for JMMT and MT, and has contributed to the content of the APTA OCS examination.

 

We covered the following topics in our live sit down with Dr. Karas:

  • Karas journey from an ATC to a PT
  • The best thing about Ireland? Guinness, obviously. Dr. Karas shares some other highlights about studying abroad in PT school
  • The constructs of international healthcare through the eyes of a PT
  • ICD10 medical codes (used to describe the medical diagnosis) can really get interesting in Australia
  • Magpies, kangaroos, snakes, PT, healthcare education. 1 year in the outback in a nutshell
  • We compare PT in the states to PT in Australia and the possible perception of what a PT stands for in both places
  • Karas provides a PT message for people all over the globe (and offers a tactful apology if anyone’s offended)
  • How to promote the right activity for every person
  • Talking someone out of the “bone on bone” mindset
  • Old an current literature that is driving Dr. Karas’ most recent spinal research
  • The “bell curve” of patients that get better and why “The N of 1” is the most important stat a PT should know
