“As a physical therapist, I value the ability to create special bonds with my patients and work as a team to return them to their prior level of function or better. The greatest reward is celebrating my patients’ accomplishments during their rehabilitative journey as they reflect on how far they have come while still making strides toward their personal goals. Our goal is complete when they return to doing the things they love and experience a better quality of life, taking the tools they have learned with them to remain pain-free.”
