Physical Therapy Solutions (PTS) is the best! I started interning at PTS about a year ago and the team here has helped me grow in so many ways. I've interned at other clinics before, but none of them even close to how great PTS is. The team here genuinely cares about everyone that walks through their door, and I feel so lucky to have had the privilege of being able to observe the ortho&peds therapy team, the wellness team, and the front desk team--I really wish I didn't have to leave!
I first applied for an internship at PTS because I was interested in learning more about pediatric physical therapy. I shadowed Dr. Flores and Courtney and witnessed many young patients progress through torticollis programs successfully. It really was an eye-opening experience to see how effortlessly Dr. Flores worked with the peds patients; and I definitely learned a lot about the different kinds of skills that another should have when working with such a young age group.
Later in my internship, I started to shadow Dr. Hussein and Dr. Lui. I don't have any background in anatomy, but Dr. Hussein was always patient with me and continued to teach me so much about the body. I have a notepad at home that has all the terms that Dr. Hussein has taught me, and trust me, it's a thick notepad! Dr. Lui also taught me a lot about the body, but I really have to thank him for helping me develop a strong interest in visceral manipulation (which is now something I hope to practice in the future!). He always stressed the importance of continuing my education past PT school and he has definitely shaped my ideas of what it takes to be a great physical therapist. I can't thank them enough for the impact and inspiration they have had in my life this past year.
I could go on and on about everything PTS has to offer. Whether you are interested in orthopedics or pediatrics, or simply just want to gain exposure to physical therapy, this is THE place to apply to. I promise, you won't regret it :-) Dr. Flores really has done an amazing job in creating a warm and welcoming learning environment for both her patients and interns.
So, thank you Dr. Flores, Dr. Hussein, Dr. Lui, Brady, Jacey, Lisa, Courtney, Daniel, Jessica J., Jessica D, and Elayna for making my experience at Physical Therapy Solutions so great! I'm going to miss everyone!
