I think it’s very important to remember that each patient is unique and while we are treating an injury or illness, we must look at the patient as a whole. We need to find out what is important to the patient in regards to their treatment and recovery and let that be a guiding force when creating a treatment plan. For example, if a patient is very active and likes hiking, we need to do our best to help them return to such activities. While repairing a physical injury is a huge part of our job, we have to remember that is not the only aspect of a patient we are responsible for.
