Know When It's Time To Undergo Physical Therapy (RT @MoveForwardPT: Know when it's time to see a physical therapist.
Jane Bird's insight:

This article was very insightful. I learned that not only do people that are recovering from surgery go to a physical therapist, but people can also choose this route instead of surgery. The best way to achieve better physical function is to be seen and set on a plan by a PT. Also, after surgery, a PT can help with having a faster recovery, as well as setting you up with long-term success and function. This is able to happen to due the fact that the regimine that a PT instills will help with strengthening the muscles around the affected area. Finally, physical therapists are a great answer if one is looking to alleviate some pain.

Jane Bird's insight:

This article was about a new Physical Therapy office that won a silver medal in the ADVANCE Magazine for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine’s 12th annual Practice of the Year contest. This was a big deal because they had only been up and running for 18 months. Also, the people in charge of bringing this organization to life, pride themselves in customer service and finding new ways of getting their name out there. I like this article because they had a vision and put it to action. Also, their main goal is to help as many people as possible.

Jane Bird's insight:

This article is about a personal trainer who loved sports and found a career in training athletes to their prime. This job is similar in a lot of ways to being a physical therapist because both invlolve getting people as strong as possible- whether it be after an injury or getting them in a condition that was better than ever before. Also, both careers require good people skills. They need to have uplifting and exciting attitudes because i have learned that ultimately, that is what draws people back to you.

Jane Bird's insight:

This article was very insightful. First of all, they spoke of how crucial physical therapy can be for after-surgery patients. Also, I had previously thought that physical therapy was just a tool to get you on your feet sooner, but it is actually a huge step in preventative care. In this reading, it states that this practice has been found to cut down on the chances of developing further problems with general weakness and pneumonia for instance. Also, physical therapy reduces the chances of getting a blood clot, which is why patients can leave the hospital in only three days. Overall, physical therapy is the best way to regain health as soon as possible.

Physical Therapy for Sports Injuries: When Physical Therapy Can Help You Reduce Pain and Prevent Injury

Physical therapy isn't just for people with broken bones or major injuries. A few sessions of physical therapy can help athletes and exercisers recover and heal from sports injuries.
Jane Bird's insight:

I learned a lot from this article! First of all, physical therapy jobs are seriously on the rise. In 2000, services have grown from about 1.2 million per day, to 1.6 million per day in 2008.That is a crazy amount. Also, by 2016, it is suspected to grow by a third. The best kind of employment to seek is that which is constantly growing. People will always need medical attention. In fact, people are now seeking more medical assistance than before, for treatment they may have at one time done at home. Physical therapy is indeed the best form of recovery; instead of waiting for one thing on your body to heal, one would instead be on the offensive side of things compared to defensive. In conclusion, don't let one injured body part affect your entire body.

Physical Therapist* in Glendale, AZ | Jane Bird's CE project | Scoop.it
This position is an inpatient position located at Arrowhead Hospital. Overview: Evaluates, plans and implements specific treatment programs for individual patients according to the principles and practices of physical therapy.
Jane Bird's insight:

From this Webpage, I learned about some of the qualifications that a common Physical Therapy institute requests for incoming therapists. For example, they want people with at least a Bachelor's Degree in the Physical Therapy field. Also, Physical Therapy is very interpersonal. Someone who is hired into this position needs good people skills, not only with patients, but also fellow workers. Finally, they prefer people with at least 6 months of experience; so interning at various businsses while schooling would be a very good use of time, and will create a good transition form school into the work world.

This short webpage actually taught me a lot. First of all, there are a lot of physical therapy jobs across the country; so, because of this growing job market, if you need to move, chances are there will be a new job opportunity in your new home town. Also, there are a wide range of destinations for the job. Not only can you work in a strictly PT clinic, but also hospitals, pediatrics, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation facilities, home health and school districts. So, once you get the degree you can literally take it anywhere and everywhere.

Jane Bird's insight:

This article discussed how there are 60 million U.S. children between ages 6 and 18 who participate in organized sports. However, with more and more stresses to excel, the repercussions are mostly negative. Kids face the problem of overuse and burnout earlier in their career compared to past years. But, that's what physical therapists are for! They are there in order to help everyone succeed- including little athletes. Also, the greater the push for athletes to be the best will only increase the amount of jobs for those in the physical therapy field.

Jane Bird's insight:

This was a short article about how physical therapists diagnose and treat patients. In order to regain full strength in the activities that the patients love, PT's first take a look at personal history then they evaluate flexibility, strength and posture. By looking at these answers, a PT can diagnose the issue, and discuss treatment- which can be as simple as advice on how to do the activity differently in order to reduce stress to the affected area. Or, a major course of treatment is just applying simple exercises to daily life. A PT specializes in rehabihitation through strength-building work-outs in order to regain as much muscle as possible.

Richmond, VA (Director of Physical Therapy in Richmond, VA http://t.co/x3lDwp2E4k #job)
Jane Bird's insight:

Based on this article, I learned that there are many things that go into being a Director of Physical Therapy. First of all, one must be a motivated and energetic leader- which I think would be quite fitting for my personality. Also, for someone applying for this job, they need a Doctorate of Physical Therapy, along with experience in both the leadership area and hands-on activities of the job. As a director, it isn't only office work, but a professional opinion is also very respected from the other staff. Being a Director would be very self-fulfilling in my opinion because you would be in charge of an entire running medical facility. Plus, you could totally make it your own. Through the office keep-up, staff on the job, and overall management, all work would be run through you.

Jane Bird's insight:

From this article, I learned how physical therapists do more than just massaging and stretching. They are supportive of patients and are here to ensure their entire well-being. In this article, they speak about how drinking water is not only good for their overall health, but also a necessity for people who are rehabilitating an injury. I believe this was a good indicator of where the heart is for people employed by the physical therapy industry; in the patient. They don't want their patients to return, instead, they want them getting back to what they love. Whether it is through stretching, or giving advice for thier entire person, a physical therapists job is to help people.
