Treatment Areas of Interest
- Joint replacements
- Sports injury rehabilitation
- Running injuries and rehabilitation
My interest in working with general orthopedic conditions is what led me here. During my clinical experience I also built an interest specifically working with runners and athletes of all ages. As I grow I hope to develop new areas of interest and to gain knowledge to best help my patients.
Why I became a physical therapist
Growing up I was always interested in how the body worked, why we get injured, and diagnoses of injuries. I also enjoyed playing multiple sports while growing up and I believe this sparked that interest. During my senior year of high school I spent 6 months in PT and it helped solidify my interest in the world of healthcare and more specifically Physical Therapy.
What I feel are the most important qualities in a physical therapist
I believe that a Physical Therapist must be able to connect with patients to build a sense of trust and understanding on both sides. I also believe being observant is very important; whether about general actions/movements or body language. I also believe Physical Therapist’s should be able to adapt, whether with communication or plans of care. Lastly, I feel as a Physical Therapist it is important to be eager for more knowledge because that knowledge will ultimately be beneficial to our patients as well.
