Thank you for visiting my website.
This is, I believe, my 3rd or 4th iteration of re-engineering ryanbalmes.com.
So for those of you who’ve been to this website before from the very beginning…thank you for coming back.
My goal for this website is to share my thoughts and takes on everything and anything on the physical therapy profession. Because I am fortunate to have both Board Certified Specialities in Sports and Orthopaedic Physical Therapy, I will be strongly biased to make content for those areas of practice.
As of this writing, I have now been practicing for 8 years. I have always had a passion for teaching and mentoring, and I have truly enjoyed my short stints serving in those roles years ago.
But because opening my own practice (I’ll write more about one day), I haven’t had the opportunity to really serve as a formal mentor or teach as much as I’d like.
Thankfully, because of the internet, I really don’t have to wait for a faculty position to open up, and I don’t have be part of a residency or fellowship program to mentor and teach.
I hope to live out what I enjoy doing, mentoring and teaching, out here on the internet for you. And as you get to know me, you’ll know that I’m still pretty optimistic of what the internet can achieve in this world. I’m here in Atlanta, Georgia drafting this blog post, but you may be reading this in a completely different part of the world!
So if you’re a practicing physical therapist, and you’re open to knowing more about how to really enjoy being a true practicing clinician (not a manager…more on that later), then you’re in the right place. I believe wholeheartedly that when we get to a better place as clinicians with practice, then ultimately the patients and clients we serve will really benefit and succeed.
Thank you coming by the website. I hope you come back soon, and often!
