Storyboard Text

  • To wrap up the day, the PT and I discussed all the patients we saw and I mentioned some ways that an OT could help.  I told him that I liked how they do functional activities to make sure that the patient is able to ambulate safely in their home as well as the community.
  • I was able to direct a patient on table exercises.  We did leg lifts, bridges, ball squeezes, and open clam shell.  This was really fun as it felt like this was my own patient. I asked about how this injury was affecting their home life, giving them more of an OT perspective. 
  • During this session with a patient, I witnessed how crucial balance is.  The amount of patients that have difficulties balancing is astounding.  This helps with being able to go up/down steps, stepping off the curb, and just walking in general.  Many patients are uncomfortable trying this activity, so the PT actually created a real life scenario by using a small step simulating a curb or step in their home.
