You will learn about many different disabilities here!
My Fieldwork Supervisor welcomed me to the facility and instructed me on what I will be doing there. Some of my responsibilities will be: learning and supervising various exercises, applying ice/heat, tending to patient rooms, patient interaction, watching patients perform exercises, etc.
Learning new and different exercises to use with patients of certain disabilities. Patients let me observe their treatment sessions to learn and be able to help the PT in the future. (Dislocated Knee, Hip Replacement, Knee Replacement, Lumbar Spine Issues)
Each sessions opened up with the PT doing manual therapy assessing range of motion, flexibility, and pain location. Next the sessions moved to exercises, resistance bands, and the stationary bike or treadmill.
