I wanted to take a moment and share a recent case study that I find to be particularly interesting. Most of the time when I work with a patient we start with a set of symptoms or even a known medical condition. Some tests are ordered, results observed and a plan of action is set in motion. An improvement in symptoms, and/or a follow up test weeks or months later tells us if our efforts were effective. But an interesting thing is starting to happen. My patients are coming in wearing a Fitbit or some other handy device that measures all sorts of things about their daily physiology. This provides for both of us some powerful feedback in real time as to how the strategies we are employing are actually working. The basis of this piece is in regards to just such a patient experience.
