I have been blessed to have had a long career in physical therapy watching the field grow and change over the years. What remains is the ever-present need for continued guidance of patients in recovery from illness, injury and surgery to obtain optimal functional outcomes. Although I have less direct patient care, I now am able to help mold and shape our younger therapists in this ever-changing health care world. It is said that, ‘What you don’t use, you lose.’ I do think many of the ills we face today are affected by our lifestyle choices. I try to have and encourage others to have an active and healthy lifestyle.
