Even though this article isn't completely related to my career choice, I feel that reading it has helped me in some way. I learned about rehabilitation within the human body and what you need to do in order heal yourself and the steps you take in order to make yourself stronger. That kind of relates to what a personal trainer would do. Helping others succeed.

Physical therapy and cancer: Motion and mobility before and after cancer treatment

Physical therapy and cancer: Motion and mobility before and after cancer treatment | Sports Ethics | Scoop.it

"Surviving cancer takes more than surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. It takes rehabilitation, and ideally, include prehabilitation, according to Julie Silver, MD, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School.1,2 Silver learned about the importance of oncology prehabilitation and rehabilitation the hard way—by having cancer herself in 2003. Recovering from grueling treatment for breast cancer at 38 years old, she was surprised at how ill she was. There was no aftercare in place, and with no mention of cancer rehabilitation she really struggled to recover and go back to work. She said, “I did some exercise testing, and I tested out as a woman in her 60s. So I had aged three decades in a matter of months through cancer treatment.

Silver realized there was a sizeable gap in oncology services available to patients. Utilizing her training as a physiatrist, a physician specializing in nonoperative treatment of musculoskeletal problems, she initiated a program of prehabilitation before cancer treatment as well as rehabilitation therapy after treatment. Launched in 2009, STAR Program (Survivorship Training and Rehabilitation) certified rehabilitation is offered by many facilities throughout the United States. Cancer rehabilitation addresses the findings of the 2010 National Health Interview Survey. The survey results demonstrated that many of the health-related quality-of-life (HRQOL) difficulties experienced by cancer survivors are physical.4 In that study, investigators evaluated 1,822 cancer survivors and 24,804 persons who had never received a cancer diagnosis.4 Although almost 25% of survivors reported being in poor physical health, only 10.2% of those with no history of cancer said their health was poor.4 When asked about mental health, 10.1% of survivors reported being in poor mental health, while only 5.9% of persons who had no cancer diagnosis said their mental health was poor.4 Silver noted that there is often a significant overlap between the physical and psychological components of distress experienced by cancer survivors, creating a real need for rehabilitation that is rarely delivered."

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 11:55 AM

When I worked as PTA, the way we pushed patients through as if they were parts at a car factory, frustrated many of the other PT/PTA's alike. The way the Doctor pushed patients through, became scrutinized by insurance companies, quickly leading to its closing.

The future of ethics in Physical Therapy

New theories in law can have a profound affect on what is considered ethical treatment as well as clinical practices.

This is more of a lengthy read, however it breaks down the basis of a lot of questionable practices.

Continued Education in a profession like this is an absolute must.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, January 6, 2014 3:56 AM

In this article, I learned that your clients or what some would call peers, need to trust and accept you in order to see the best results possible. Even though you may have a degree, continued research is still appreciated within the community of physical therapy. You also need to provide all the information necessary to a patient/client so that they can make an informed decision on what they want to do.
