Ep. 86: Dichotomy in AT

Di’kademe/: a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different.

Moving to one extreme or the other can be hard to balance, especially if you try and make two seemingly opposing views/perspectives try and mix together and champion both of them. This is where dichotomy comes from and the concept that you have to find balance. There are times to be aggressive but you have to be able to double back with caution because you can’t run yourself in only one direction and then immediately make a switch.

Recognizing and embracing the dichotomy of ideas is important to all professions but can have some serious implications in athletic training. It is important to recognize the wide range of differing ideas but also be able to balance those in order to be maximally effective. We discussing this episode.

In this Episode:

+Autonomy as medical provider vs. Being on coaching staff

+Providing a service vs. Being a servant

+Wanting change vs. Stepping into the change

+Increase diversity vs. Making profession harder to attain

+Higher compensation vs. Giving more for the same
