Get everything you need to know about sleep health as a physiotherapist in this concise, easy-to-read book.
As physiotherapists we may ask cursory questions to our patients but sleep.
But often don’t feel comfortable digging deeper. There’s a strong relationship between pain and sleep which means the likelihood is that a number of people on your caseload struggle with sleep.
The biopsychosocial model has been making more and more inroads into how we look at our treatment strategies, which is great. But, sleep health can often be forgotten.
What I discovered was that sleep education focused for the physical therapist was sparse. And I wrote this book to empower the physiotherapist with the knowledge and tools to help understand sleep health.
Why is sleep health important for physiotherapists?
Listen to this podcast with Andrew as he shares why on the ignitephysio podcast:
Hear what physiotherapists have had to say:
I thought I was stuck with just sharing a few sleep hygiene rules, but this book has opened my eyes to so much more. It’s an easy, yet educational read and the ideas have been easy to implement with my patients.
Sleep health is a topic that has become integral to quality care for our patients. Andrew has created a comprehensive and valuable resource for PTs and other health providers. Highly recommended!
It is incredibly well organized and easy to read. I appreciate the amount of research cited and the knowledge level of this book. It's a perfect mix of general and scientific language for the therapist.
