  • Maintaining Relationships in PT School

    Today, I heard from an old friend and realized that I'm having a hard time keeping up with relationships outside of school. Last week, I got home at 8 p.m. or later every night, even on Sunday because we had a fundraiser event! In sum, I'm on campus at least 50 hours a week. It can be so consuming that we often refer to our non-PT friends as the ...

  • Future of Therapy

    With today's technology, there's no reason for therapists to sit and wait for equipment to be delivered through a third party. When every therapy department has a 3-D printer, we can receive a 3-D fax that will print up the equipment we ordered. Knee braces, walkers, extra parts for broken equipment, you name it and we'll have it. X-rays will no ...

  • Our New Pet

    I brought home a new dog last week -- a beautiful 2-year-old affectionate and sedentary English bulldog named Darcy. After a few years of talking about getting a pet, I decided to look more into some breeders and came across Darcy. We decided she seemed like the right pet for us and the right time in our lives to add both responsibility and joy to ...

  • Coordinating Our PT Requests to Congress

    I'm now participating in monthly conference calls for advocacy for physical therapy. Participating might be too strong a word. I listen. Others report. As a result, I've learned that much effort is being put into eliminating the therapy cap and other reimbursement issues. At the end of the call, the facilitator encouraged everyone to keep ...

  • Wound Care PT

    One of my classes this semester is titled ''Integumentary.'' The course covers a variety of topics related to the skin but is centered largely on wound care. In the first two days of the course we've learned dozens of dermatological terms, staging for different types of ulcers, wound and burn classifications and more. We've also seen a ton of ...

  • Ice Bucket Challenge

    Over the past few weeks, I've noticed more videos of my friends appearing on various social media networks of themselves dumping ice cold water on their heads and nominating others to do the same. I didn't know much about how the trend started and after some reading (as well as the messages in each video), learned it was a fundraising effort to ...

  • Mandatory Dementia Training

    I recently was looking for a good read at the library -- anything that would pique my interest and whisk me into a riveting story that related to my life in no way. As it turned out, I passed on the gritty crime fiction novels and historical fiction (my fave!) and picked up a book on caregiving for people with dementia. I was immediately hooked ...

  • The Health Fringe

    Stay active, eat healthy, get plenty of sunshine and take colloidal silver. Okay, so don't take the silver, take something else, like, bitter cola. I think I could produce enough clinical evidence to promote either one though and patients would probably listen to me like I'm an authority on healthy living. Isn't that part of what we do -- ...

  • Two Weeks an Expert

    I am involved with a networking group of rehab therapists (PT, OT, SLP) that's based back in the US. Earlier this week a member requested information on how to set up a fall prevention program. She was very enthusiastic about the need for such a program where she lived and was looking to start working in a private/home health sort of way. I can ...

  • Errorless Learning for Memory Impairment

    Post written by ADVANCE guest blogger Rachel Wynn, MS, CCC-SLP Let's start with a story that takes place in a SNF where I worked. The tight quarters of a small therapy gym and rehab wing allowed for easy co-treating and observation of my fellow therapists' treatment, which I found incredibly valuable as a new graduate. I noticed when a very ...
