You should probably know that this article is potentially the most painful article I've ever written.
Painful because I'm openly sharing why I chose to walk away from a great profession.
As a matter of fact, this one is going to take some courage to hit the "publish" button.
It's been several years now since I walked away from my role as a clinician.
I was an orthopedic physical therapist (hopefully, a damn good one too).
I still get a lot of questions about why I left the clinic?
Until now, I've never shared the full story, but because I'm asked about this so often, it's time.
(*Special "thank you" to Tami and Luis for your recent questions. It was your questions that formed the basis for this article).
Keep in mind that there are lessons in this article for every reader.
Do I regret leaving PT?
I'll explain soon.
Things happen for a reason and it’s the choices we make that shape our lives.
