Year to Your Ideal Career

You may have already tried changing jobs, talked to your manager, or read books or blog posts on how to overcome the pit of your stomach feeling of not liking what you are doing everyday. It just feels hopeless.

The first thing you need to know is that it is ok to not want to be in full time patient care or to be seeing only a very specific type of patient. It doesn’t mean you are not meant to be a physical therapist or that you wasted your education. It actually means that you are about to embark on something spectacular.

Musculoskeletal Self-Screen: Getting and Keeping the Ideal Patient

Imagine if patients knew when to come into the clinic before experiencing pain or an injury. Could you imagine seeing more patients for wellness instead of just chronic pain and post-op care? What if your patients were directed to you right away at the first onset of pain, rather than waiting months? What if you had something meaningful to give patients at health fairs and community talks that actually directed the type of patients you want into your care?

Return to Sport and Discharge Testing

Do you want to be more scientific with your return to sport and discharge decisions? Do you want to focus more on injury prevention but don’t have the time or resources? You can dramatically impact your patient’s health and reduce re-injury rates by making evidence-based, return to sport and discharge decisions. Dr. Plisky presents such measures including the Upper and Lower Quarter Y-Balance Tests, Functional Movement Screen, and Hop Testing.

More About Me

Dan Marr

Director of NHL Central Scouting

"Dr. Plisky’s expertise and proficiency with the Y Balance Test has become an integral part of the NHL Combine screening procedures. His level of professionalism in administering  large group screening is unparalleled and provides vital insights on athletes. His presence in overseeing the testing instills confidence in the process and results with both athletes and strength and conditioning specialists alike."


Jon Torine
Former NFL Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, World Champion Indianapolis Colts

"In life there are people that you know you can go to that can solve problems, offer wisdom, expertise, and make the complicated simple.  Through my 25 years of coaching, 17 in the NFL, consulting and implementing systems across youth, college and pro sports I’ve been fortunate to have a few of those people. I am honored to say that Phil Plisky is one of those guys. Phil has an easy to understand brilliance and way of working with people that both puts them at ease and challenges you to look at multiple perspectives. When it comes to testing, assessments, return to play, injury reduction, and improving athletes health and efficiency there are few I trust as much as Phil. "


Todd Arnold MD
