PT on the Mind
It's been a week since classes ended, and even though I hate to admit it, I can't stop thinking about PT-related things. Is this a glimpse into the rest of my life? Our last anatomy lecture covered the pelvic floor and related therapy techniques, so today when I found out my friend was going in to labor, I couldn't help but recall some of the potential therapy she could have in the next few months. The most frustrating part is that while I remember some information, I can't recall everything, so I find myself going crazy trying to remember the small details and eventually accepting that it's not going to happen.
By far the most annoying example of this has been a constant analysis of people's gait (with only very rudimentary knowledge). Everywhere I go, I find myself staring at people and wondering if they have any abnormal gait patterns. I've even started to analyze myself. I think I supinate. From there, I've been trying to figure out if I compensate in strange ways. It's a never-ending cycle and I hope it stops.
