What Rea likes most about being a physical therapist

The journey of troubleshooting with my clients, listening to their story to find the root cause of the problem, and then collaborating with them to find a workable solution. I love how the human body is a complex system that uses biomechanical teamwork to heal itself. It’s exciting to pursue new roads of practice in the therapy world; there is always something new to learn and add to my “toolbox”.
