Episode 7: You are too Subjective to be Objective – Part 1

You are too Subjective to be Objective. You cannot treat yourself. You cannot heal yourself. You need objective testing, eyes, and results to get where you want to be.

Quarterly Nutrition, Exercise, and Physical checks should be done!

  • (1:20): Too subjective to be objective – “feeling, thinking” is subjective, this is not black and white. Subjectivity is variable. Objectivity is not variable.
  • (2:30): Dr. Jake’s story about injuring his back on the golf course and he could not fix himself.
  • (5:30): Dr. Jake’s symptoms were similar to a herniation, but it was clear by the evaluation by a PT that wasn’t himself, but the pain was not actually coming from a herniation.
  • (8:30): When you are “feeling” the pain, you are living it, even with high pain tolerance.
  • (9:12): In Western medicine we have Quarterly Check Ups, but we don’t have annual check-ups physically or nutritionally.
  • (9:53): One major problem – insurance doesn’t cover someone to have a physical therapist check their form and (generally) Americans want insurance to pay for these things.
  • (14:45): It is important to have a qualified individual “check you” for these annual form and physical check-ups. 95% correct is not good enough – we need the time for objective testing to ensure physically we are 100% correct.
  • (16:45): BPT is different than other PT offices because they are out of network with insurances – so they have the “freedom” to check you head to toe and identify causes for symptoms, pain, asymmetry, etc.
  • (20:39): Something is better than nothing – going to someone with insurance is better than not going at all.
  • (21:12): I recommend quarterly checks for physical checks or nutrition checks. However, depends on the level of activity for the individual.

Dr. Jake Berman

After graduating from the University of Florida, Dr. Jake Berman, PT, DPT sought out mentorship first from Bob Seton in Destin, FL and then from Aaron Robles in Jacksonville, FL. Both of these mentors have 20+ years of experience helping people keep active and mobile so they can enjoy high quality active lifestyles. What Jake found was that back pain was by far the most debilitating pain and the highest factor leading to decreased physical activity later in life. These experiences are what inspired Jake to specialize in helping people aged 50+ keep active, mobile and pain free despite the aging process. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to alleviate somebody’s back pain so that they can get back to living their best life- especially in Naples! Over the years of helping 100’s of people aged 65-75 become stronger and pain free, one thing for sure has become apparent: “he who rests rots”. Jake is a firm believer that we become stiff then old, not old then stiff. Seriously, think about it...
