“Faux-sical Therapy” Identity Crisis

In this world of intense marketing and endless¬†choices, people are always attempting to re-brand, or even un-brand themselves. Looking online for a church a few years ago, I found that many appeared at first to be non-denominational, but were in fact, part of a mainstream denomination.

Physical Therapy Observer Program

As a result of my experiences – good and bad – with physical therapy observations, I decided to come up with a framework that will allow someone truly interested to “take the bull by the horns” and benefit, while at the same time, giving me the ability to write a thoughtful and thorough recommendation for those that wanted one.
