Physical Therapy on The Little Couple
I was just watching the new episode of The Little Couple and since I have been to so many physical therapy sessions in my life I was interested in the scene where Jen was at the physical therapist’s office. I liked the way he worked with her, and let her be part of the whole thing rather than doing everything himself. I thought it was cool that there was an upside down table in the background. It is good to know physical therapists are aware of newer techniques for stretching etc. It was interesting to me that most of what they talked about was strength training, and then he simply gave her homework. It reminded me of my physical therapy in my pre teens and teen years where I would basically just be working out, with a bit of stretching added on, then homework. I don’t know how many times Jen went to this guy but I have heard from a few sources that a lot of people don’t go to PT weekly for years on end like I did. Even other people with CP I talk to. I have to wonder if my parents were just more motivated and thought I needed the extra PT or if things have simply changed. Any thoughts on this?
