NPS (Nail Patella Syndrome) – General Clinical Presentation

Hey Everyone! Rare diseases – there are a ton of them, right? They can often times be difficult to treat just because they are not as common, the population may be widespread, and there just simply hasn’t been much research done to effectively help the people and remain “evidence-based.” I’ve decided to try to undergoContinue reading “NPS (Nail Patella Syndrome) – General Clinical Presentation”

The Generalist PT

It’s 2018. I’ve been out of PT school for about 2.5 years now. Time flies, right? I can’t believe it. I’ve been working in acute care mainly, a little PRN help in SNFs and outpatient facilities… Ya know, the typical post-grad-need-to-pay-off-my-loans thing. Meanwhile, I feel like everyone around me is getting certified in a millionContinue reading “The Generalist PT”

Going Vegan in Japan

Going vegan seems to be the hottest new trend in health and diets out there. Recently, my husband and I watched the Netflix documentary, “What The Health.” While I do feel that some of the documentary was a little dramatized, there were definitely some great takeaway points and facts that I didn’t know prior toContinue reading “Going Vegan in Japan”

Travel on a Budget: 2 Days in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

After my few days in Singapore, I headed to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. I took the bus from Singapore to KL which ended up being about 6-7 hours total, with 2 stops at customs/immigration, and a rest stop in the middle. Many people recommend flying as it is not much more expensive (maybe $60 comparedContinue reading “Travel on a Budget: 2 Days in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia”

My Day at a Singapore Physio School

During my recent travel to Singapore, I was fortunate enough to connect with a physiotherapy school and be able to visit. How did this connection happen, you ask? Well, I am just one big ole Instagram creep who looked up hashtags and found them. Yes, it is true. I knew I wanted to visit aContinue reading “My Day at a Singapore Physio School”

Travel on a Budget: 3 Days in Singapore

While Singapore was not my first solo traveling trip, I was surprisingly nervous to go. That being said, I also googled a few things and learned that it is a very safe country to travel in. I didn’t have a ton of money to spend here – as I am only working part time atContinue reading “Travel on a Budget: 3 Days in Singapore”

Japan: To Yokosuka and Beyond

Whether you are stationed here for the military, living abroad here (or nearby in Yokohama or Tokyo), or just traveling temporarily, I’m sure you will be looking for things to do! I have been to a fewContinue reading “Japan: To Yokosuka and Beyond”

Frostbite on the way up, Sunburn on the way down: Mt. Fuji Night Hike

Hiking Mt. Fuji is one of the main reasons younger tourists come to Japan nowadays. As my husband and I began our research, we found there were a decent number of blogs, youtube videos, and lots of Instagram posts describing each person’s experience. While my husband had hiked it once before, I had not. AndContinue reading “Frostbite on the way up, Sunburn on the way down: Mt. Fuji Night Hike”

That Time I Observed a Japanese Day Rehab

During my recent travel to Japan, I had the amazing opportunity to shadow a Japanese day rehab. While I had emailed the World Confederation of Physical Therapy and the Japanese Physical Therapy Association months prior to my trip to Japan, I found it was difficult to get much of a response to set up aContinue reading “That Time I Observed a Japanese Day Rehab”
