36- The Power of the Triad with Jennifer Lee

If you look around you, you may notice that many things come in a triad. This is because registering a concept in a set of 3 is very easy for the brain to comprehend.

This is why we celebrate Gold, Silver and Bronze for events, because if we had a fourth option, it would be more difficult to remember. Also this is why many books are written in 3s, such as trilogies, or the 3 musketeers.

Focusing on the power of the triad becomes so important in any kind of rehab protocol. If we focus on groups of three, the brain and the body, plus the spirit (see what I did there??) will be impacted in a much more powerful way.

How to Apply a Triad to Physical Therapy

If you have ever been to a physical therapist, you might not have even noticed that they are working in triads. We see this in the planes of motion that are available, the mind/body/spirit component, and even in the neuromusculoskeletal system.

Many of these areas where we see triadoxes occurring cannot be impacted singularly. If you touch one arm of the triad, you are really influencing all of the different components on some level.

My guest today, Jennifer Lee of Spooner PT, loves this whole idea of working with the triads. She sees the power of 3 every single day in her practice, and is fascinated by the changes she sees when you touch all aspects of a triad.

In this episode, Jennifer Lee and I discuss:

»Where there are triads within the physical therapy world

»How you can influence the body in unique ways if you focus on a triad

»What are all the triadoxes that can be found in physical therapy

»Why are these triads so valuable to the body
