The #1 reason why people find deep squatting difficult | SOL ... | Wanting to become a physical therapist | Scoop.it

My thoughts:In this aritcle it talks about the ability to do a deep squat and the range of motion in your ankles and how to improve that range of motion. Well my range of motion in my ankles is terrible, but more in my right ankle due to my injury. At my physical therapy sessions my therapist tests my range of motion in both of my ankles and does exercises to increase the number in the mobility that I have. I noticed that my deep squat is low on charts because I cannot go that low wiout lifting up my heels and you are not supposed to have your heels come off of the ground, that means that your range of motion is bad and needs to be exercised to increase motion in your ankles. Your dorsiflection is what matters when doing deep squats, that is the part of your ankle that you can move that is located on the top of your ankle. I saw from this article that I have to exercise my range of motion everyday for my dorsiflection to get better.

READER SUBMITTED: Neag School's DPT Program Achieves Hat Trick - Hartford Courant

READER SUBMITTED: Neag School's DPT Program Achieves Hat Trick - Hartford Courant | Wanting to become a physical therapist | Scoop.it

My thoughts: I sense that anybody who makes it all the way through the DPT program feel a huge accomplishment after they have. Since having a physical therapy degree went from a master's to a doctorate it is a lot more school to take and more hard work to put in. I want to complete the program to get a career that I know I can have because there are always going to be jobs in the medical field. Going through the program will teach me all of the skills that I need in order to become a successful and credible physical therapist.

Latest Systems for Improving Physical Therapy Business Introduced by a Private Practice Marketing Expert, Nitin Chhoda Through His Website

Latest Systems for Improving Physical Therapy Business Introduced by a Private Practice Marketing Expert, Nitin Chhoda Through His Website | Wanting to become a physical therapist | Scoop.it

My thoughts: This article is interesting because it discusses the documenting software for physical therapists, hospitals, and clinics. Also about how the medical billing requires the help of software, and i agree with that because billing a patient is very important. Keeping track of patients would be difficult so they need software help to stay organized. I think it is good that software is becoming available for other clinics.

READER SUBMITTED: Physical Therapy Students Use Wheelchairs To Deepen ... - Hartford Courant

READER SUBMITTED: Physical Therapy Students Use Wheelchairs To Deepen ... - Hartford Courant | Wanting to become a physical therapist | Scoop.it

My thoughts: This article makes me want to become a physical therapist even more because of what it is about. A project on people being in a wheel chair for 24 hours without changing their daily routine. This would be extremely difficult and there are people who have to live like this every day for the rest of their lives, and that is sad. I am the type of person where if I see someone who needs help, I want to help them in anyway that I can to get their needs met. It breaks my heart when I see people with disabilities because it makes me think of how grateful I am and should be and want to help others in need.

Physical Therapy Brooklyn: Physical Therapy – The Right Choice for Back Pain Reduction

My thoughts: I can relate to this article because I have been through chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists for my back, neck, and ankle. I went to a chiropractor when I was younger because of my back. I went to physical therapy for my ankle after a severe high-ankle sprain and surgery. Now I go to massage therapy for my back, neck, and legs. I have had joint and muscle pain all of my life so I guess I don't really know what it feels like to feel "good" in a physical sense. I would agreee that physical therapy treatments work extremely well because after I would have ultrasound done on my ankle after doing all of my exercises, it felt amazing because it feel as if it is relieving stress from my ankle and leg because my muscles and tendons are tight from the sprain.
