What made you get into the field of Physical Therapy?

I enjoy working closely with people to help them reach their goals, which is what got me into physical therapy. 

 

How long have you been practicing physical therapy?

4 years!

 

What’s your favorite part about being a physical therapist?

My favorite part about being a physical therapist is meeting new faces all the time. I enjoy working on people while getting to know them. Meeting interesting people makes my days interesting. I also like seeing the progress people have made from the first to the last day that I see them. The outcomes put both a smile on my face and my client's faces. It's very rewarding to see people doing activities they couldn't do before physical therapy.

 

What’s your favorite condition to treat as a physical therapist? 

Shoulder conditions. The shoulder is a dynamic joint that can do wonders for us. We use the shoulder every day to work, drive, and play sports. The list goes on. Shoulder injuries can be debilitating and put people out of commission. A physical therapist can pinpoint the needs of the patient while using his/her skill set and knowledge to help an injured shoulder recover and restore function. The outcomes of a shoulder injury from physical therapy can really be life-changing which is why shoulder injuries are one of my favorite conditions to treat.

 

How can patients benefit from PT treatment?

Patients benefit from treatment when they are fully committed and cooperative. As physical therapists we see our patients only 2-3 times a week for about 1 hour. If you think about it that is only 2-3 hours out of an 168 hour week. Physical therapists and patients need to work together and set forward a plan that will optimize time to facilitate healing. Patients will benefit from doing their home exercises every day in addition to receiving physical therapy. Patients should also work on getting good sleep. That is the time when the body heals itself best. 

 

What do you love about being part of the Reddy Care PT & OT team?

There is a lot of collaboration that goes on. The team is friendly and supportive. Everyone has each other's backs.

 

What’s one fun fact about you?

I enjoy cooking. In fact, I picked up cooking when I was in school for physical therapy. It was both nourishing and therapeutic. I never make the best meals, but I am learning :)
