Why I take it: Simple; the more that I learn, the more effectively and efficiently I can serve my clients in their quest to improve their quality of their life.
Why I post it: Because I believe that every client should be an informed consumer and deserves to know what steps their healthcare providers have taken to stay current on best practice and advance their knowledge base.
You may notice that I have taken a wide variety of courses. I have yet to find a client who is one dimensional and I do not believe that a unidimensional approach at PT assessment and treatment will serve as well as a multidimensional approach.
