LIFE AS A PHYSICAL THERAPIST ASSISTANT

Being a Physical Therapist Assistant at PT360 affords me a great deal of autonomy, for which I am incredibly grateful as others in my profession may not have the same opportunity.  Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) work under the supervision of a Physical Therapist (PT) to provide treatment and help…

"WEEDING OUT" GARDENING PAIN

Gardening is a wonderful activity for the mind, body, and soul. Along with the rewards, comes hard manual labor, sore muscles, and the possibilities of injury. Many people tend to be “weekend gardeners” or think of gardening as a casual day of fun spent outdoors. Warming up, stretching, and preparing…
