Labrador teachings 7 – look and you shall find

Physiotherapy is often just that. It’s about looking beyond the pain. In coaching there are 3 kinds of observation; holistic/analytical/deductive.

– holistic is a general overview

– analytical is looking at a specific thing

– deductive is changing something to affect an outcome

So if someone has tingling in their hand then holistically, this is not normal. If the hand itself looks fine then we change something – we test. Then this tells us where the problem is.

In the example pictured I am using analytical observation to ascertain the whereabouts of a tennis ball.
