Next Step PT: Hip, Knee and Leg Pain

NEWSLETTER The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


Each year at Next Step Physical Therapy we always make it a point to take a doctoral student during one of their residencies. We have been doing that for over ten years now and continue to do so. We have always selected a student fromWashington University at St Louis School of Medicine – which was where I went to school. This year we decided to also take a student fromTouro College – a local physical therapy school on the island. Over the years people have often asked me why I do this – what’s the benefit of taking a student. The truth of the matter is having a student is not only a great

opportunity for the student but a great opportunity for our practice and for our patients. Students bring a great amount of energy and excitement – once the nerves wear off. They also ask a lot of questions, which is great for me because it keeps me on my toes (because I actually have to answer them – correctly hopefully). Students also are getting taught the newest and most modern treatment techniques so sometimes they actually end up doing the teaching as well.
