This is the second half of my conversation with Joe Muscolino. If you missed the first half of our discussion I would highly recommend listening to that episode first so that you can have context for this discussion. At the end of this episode you will get to hear about some of the work that Joe does, as well as his online video library.
If you find Joe’s process helpful and want to learn more I would highly suggest checking it out. I recently talked with Joe and managed to get all of my listeners a free month trial of his video library service. All you need to do is go to https://learnmuscles.com/?ref=34 and enter the coupon code freemonthhtp.
Anyway, I hope you check out his library, he uploads 7 new videos per week, so there is a lot of content to be had.
But back to this episode, for a little bit of context, Joe is talking about a client he once saw who he thought had performs syndrome but it turned out to be dysfunction in a small muscle called coccygeus, and that he only was able to deduce that by being objective. Its from there that we start this episode where I ask him a question about being objective.

Notable quotes from Joe in this episode:
“Almost no-one has one sign or one symptom.”
“You can’t treat someone without an assessment, or its not a treatment.”
“You are more than welcome to disagree with anything I say, but you have to give a reason for why you disagree.”
“Putting together an assessment is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.”
“We always have to know that when we believe for sure that this is the problem, that maybe it isn’t.”
“I rarely make a mistake because I rarely jump ahead.”
“There are people who are intuitive, and not everyone has to follow my linear mindset.”
“I’m very comfortable not knowing everything… When you feel like you have to have the answer you reach for any answer.”
“Follow the person who seeks truth, beware of the person who has found it.”
“The fear of making a mistake comes from not knowing the anatomy.”
“You need to be in your hands when you are working on someone.”
