In this episode, I speak with Dr. Locatelli Rao - more colloquially known and referred to as Dr. Loc - about the in's and out's of his practice as a physical therapist, horror stories in the clinic, his mindset now as compared to before, the matrix, and among other things, what specific issues in the human body that he sees are becoming more and more common. The first hour of our conversation covers the 'behind the scenes' of physical therapy like how and in what ways insurance companies love to take advantage of both clinicians and patients (and as a result why Dr. Loc transitioned out of the domineering matrix, as it were), and the second half around the 1h mark covers his insights into the human body including why inflammation isn't bad and his hypothesis behind why head-eye dissociation, meaning the ability to move your eyes independent of the head, is increasingly becoming more difficult for people. To learn more, you can reach out to Dr. Locatelli on Instagram @drlocrao. Now, this is a longer episode than usual, and if you find yourself enjoying the podcast, first and foremost: of all the other things you could listen to or watch in the same amount of time, I'm thankful you'd choose this podcast, and the biggest appreciation I could ever receive is for you to share it with somebody who you think would also enjoy it and start a conversation about something that made you pause and reflect (or if you find the entertainment value worth sharing). One of my chief goals with Mental Jiujitsu is to inspire those conversations, but as I reflect, I realize more and more that you, the listener (and subsequently, listeners), whether it's your first time or you've been around this block before, inspire me to continue to expand Mental Jiujitsu, so please keep a lookout for more projects and helpful/useful content in the coming months. I have some big things coming. Alright, I'm going to drop you right into this conversation with the best physical therapist west of the Mississippi now. Enjoy.
