Dr Mary Massery: Bridging systems in pediatric physical therapy

We talk about multi-disciplinary and we talk about being wholistic therapists that see the whole child, but Dr. Mary Massery lives and breathes these concepts (excuse the pun). Mary Massery is probably most well known for her soda pop can theory of postural stability and in our interview, I was expecting to focus on breathing and core – and we did a lot of that – but that’s just a starting point. Mary has a formidable and impressive reputation as a thought leader in physical therapy and it is well deserved. She is an international key note speaker, an academic and a practicing clinician who fully intends to keep practicing after she turns 100, which is a good thing for the rest of us and all the clients she works with! I was hugely excited to interview Mary for a wired on Podcast and I was not disappointed. You won’t be either – you are going to love this interview – enjoy!
