“As a Physical Therapist, I feel it is vital that the client is an active participant in their rehabilitation. I enjoy evaluating a client’s dysfunction, using manual therapy to help with their pain, and teaching corrective exercises to improve their conditions. It is important that the patients continue with their exercises, posture training, and activity modification at home for maximum benefit. I also feel it is important for Physical Therapists to be active in their community promoting health and injury prevention at local sporting events, church clubs, schools, races, and charitable events.”
