Physical Therapist (PT) Education Overview

Physical Therapist (PT) Education Overview | Bryce Jameson's CE Project | Scoop.it
Physical therapist (PT) professional education refers to the education that prepares graduates for entry into practice of physical therapy. (Education for the advancement of practicing physical therapists is termed postprofessional).

Via Adam Balko
Bryce Jameson's insight:

This article talks about the education that is required to become a physical therapist. This is important to me because when i go to college i need to know what classes i need to get invovled in. To be a physical therapist the classes i need to involved in to a certain extent are, " biology/anatomy, cellular histology, physiology, exercise physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, pathology, behavioral sciences, communication, ethics/values, management sciences, finance, sociology, clinical reasoning, evidence-based practice, cardiovascular and pulmonary, endocrine and metabolic, and musculoskeletal." These classes are very important to be involved in. A Bachelor degree is required to get involved in a lot of the physical therapy programs/career schools. There are two current professional degrees for physical therapy. Those are Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Degree and Master of Physical  Therapy (MPT) or Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MSPT) Degree. Education is crucial to becoming a phydical therapist.

Physical Therapy Crucial to Sports Injury Recovery

Physical Therapy Crucial to Sports Injury Recovery | Bryce Jameson's CE Project | Scoop.it

Via Matthew Hubbard
Bryce Jameson's insight:

In this article it talks about how many athletes who get injured should get into physical therapy right away. This is crucial because physical therapy can teach you methods on how to manage the pain of your injury and to stop permanent damage to your body. This is important to me because I know from a personal stance that physical therapy does help to deal with injuries. The therapists are trained to make sure you build back your balance, muscle mass, and just overall strength wherever your injury occured. The article also says that rehabilitation of an injury takes time to get back to full strength, which means patience is big when recovering.

Something that is becoming more and more relevant, is pre-physical therapy prior to ACL injury. This helps prevent the major muscle wasting that occurs during the extensive post-op of surgery.

I read this article about a woman named Elinn S Ahmad, who was a very athletic person. She was invovled in many sports at a young age and has been since than.

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.

Bryce Jameson's insight:

In this article it talks about injuries that have already occured to someone and they basically start working on getting it back to strength tp early. I think that like it said in the article young athletes need to take more pre-cautions after an injury before they return, meaning that they should do physical therapy, slowly work into it and maybe have more frequent visits to your doctor before you fully return back to sports. A lot of kids don't take these pre-cautions and end up re-injuring themselves and basically burning it out. This has to do with my topic because it gets into sports medicine and the importance of rehabilitation.

Bryce Jameson's insight:

Tearing your ACL is a terrible way to get injured. When this happens you are most likely going to have to go through surgury and go through physical training. After returning back in only a 5 months span that shows how much physical therapy can help for an injured as bad as that. I currently have been doing therapy since i broke my foot during football and its helping a whole lot.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy | Bryce Jameson's CE Project | Scoop.it
Physical therapy is an important aspect of treatment of almost all orthopedic conditions. Physical therapists use different modalities to increase strength, regain mobility and help return patients to their pre-injury level of activity.

Via Adam Balko
Bryce Jameson's insight:

This article is basically what physical therapy is. "A physical is a specialist trained to work with you to restore your activity, strength and motion following an injury or surgery." The article talks about what a physical therapist does for most patients who come to see a physical therapist. A physical therapist helps their patient by teaching them techniques to prevent further injury and to help the injury they currently have. Technique while doing things like playing sports is crucial when trying to prevent injury. This is what physical therapist try to emphasize to athletes all over the world.

Bryce Jameson's insight:

In this article it talks about how injuries are a big problem for all young athletes. I have learned that the cause of most injuries is from bad technique with stretching during warm-ups and pre-game. The prevention of injuries is simple. Just work on the little things like stretching and that could save you from tearing your ACL or pulling a muscle or whatever it may be. Young athletes don't see the importance in this most of the time and thats why they are getting injured. This has to do with my topic because all this technique and stretching can be helped by physical trainers and therapists.
