Money Doesn't Grow On Trees!
"Money is the root of all evil." I'm not sure who said that but it seems to be pretty true! Part of what I love most about my job is getting to figure out what is causing people's pain. Most of the time, the pain is clearly a musculoskeletal pain caused by acute trauma or repetitive motion types of injuries, but occasionally it is not that easy. One thing that we know is that stress plays a role in how we experience pain. The more stressed that we are the more likely we are to experience pain. What is one of the most common causes of stress in our lives? Work? Yup... Family? Yup... I can tell you that money also tends to come up in that conversation.
One of my new patients this week works as a financial planner, and we had a very interesting conversation about what she does for a living. There were several similarities between what she does and what I do. I focus on rehabilitating your body, and she focuses on rehabilitating your bank account. Both are important to your long term health and well-being! Needless to say I learned quite a bit from our conversations this week (and hopefully she learned a little too). I told her in conversation that I tend to read a lot, and she suggested several books, that she felt were very important to our financial well-being, so I figured that I would share the list that she sent me with you. Happy Reading!
