  • PT Career and Injuries

    Three different events have come up in the past week that make me wonder about the world of ''light duty'' and injuries. If you're reading this, I'm assuming you have some career connection to physical therapy and therefore realize that ours are not the type of jobs where you can work through injuries -- sometimes even minor ones. For example, a ...

  • Learning Experience

    A large department brings together varied personalities and cultures, which can create a work environment that may be less than desirable for some employees to deal with. This has not been the case as yet; however, many distinct variables exist that have the potential to harm teamwork and communication within the system. Initially, my thoughts ...

  • Taking a Look Back for Rejuvenation

    Organizing a case report is proving to be more challenging than ever. Although my patient case is, in my estimation, a complicated issue, I thought for sure that I'd have more than enough to research and background information to present than I'd know what to do with. Interestingly enough, during the exhaustive literature search from last ...

  • Two Options

    Numerous case reports and journal articles later, I'm contemplating two separate case reports for my final project in the quest for my DPT. The position I'm in now is trying to decide between two trauma patients and their complicated surgical procedures, and the interesting approach taken to treat them. A while ago I had no idea what case to ...

  • The Year in Review

    As this year comes to a close, I'd like to reflect on a most productive, busy and emotional past 12 months. Final grades have arrived this morning for the fall semester of the DPT program. My capstone project will begin very soon. After narrowing down my choices to two patients, this week I came across two more interesting patients who are ...

  • Staying Profitable and Productive

    One thing is true in the field of rehabilitation: Change is constant. This has never been more true than at the present time. Within the past year, there have been staffing shortages followed by staffing surplus; needed equipment, but not enough room; along with insurance changes that are limiting patients' ability to obtain necessary help. ...

  • Functional Outcome Tools

    Within the next few months, it will be necessary to choose a patient as a case report in order to complete my DPT. Initially, I had seriously contemplated using a patient from more than 10 years ago, a young woman who suffered a complex pelvic fracture with an accompanying femoral and obturator nerve palsy. Her return to activity was phenomenal, ...

  • Thinking Ahead

    This past week has been quite exciting at my home. My oldest graduated from high school on Monday, and my youngest finishes freshman year of high school today. Proudly, I see my young ladies growing and progressing through their teenage years with the usual bumps along the way. However, this week has shown me that they are contemplating their ...

  • Summer Semester in Progress

    Lecture handouts are printed, lectures are downloaded. ''Women's Health'' and ''Vestibular Rehabilitation'' are the classes I'm registered for and currently working on, along with the final exams, which are printed. This is going to be a quick semester. June 29 is the date for the exams to be turned in, which should not be a problem. I've learned ...
