MediLodge of Howell recognizes October as National Physical Therapy Month. We celebrate and acknowledge our dedicated Physical Therapist as well as promoting and encouraging people to look at Physical Therapy as a career choice.

Becoming a physical therapist can be one of the most rewarding career moves a person can make. If you are the type of person who is interested in science, gets excellent grades and has good rapport with people, this is the ideal career for you.

A physical therapist is involved in designing rehabilitation therapy for patients with physical disabilities. These disabilities may be the result of an accident, operation or even a disease. The field of physiotherapy is vast and there are many areas of specialty where one can concentrate.

Communication skills are very important for a physical therapist. A physical therapist develops a relationship with a patient, more so than a doctor. You will most likely be working with your patient for a period of time and you want to establish trust. You will also be instructing your patient to do things that may seem painful at first and he or she is bound to be frustrated.

A course in human psychology is beneficial for those who plan on becoming a physical therapist. Helping your patient retain a positive attitude can make a big difference in his or her recovery process. Becoming a physical therapist may be challenging, but it is a rewarding career. The opportunities are endless and the greatest opportunity of all is being able to help people recover from a variety of disabling conditions. Although the financial rewards for becoming a physical therapist are substantial, the rewards of seeing a child walk after an accident may remain with you for a lifetime.

MediLodge of Howell would like to thank all of our Physical Therapists for their continued hard work and passion to help heal.
