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”

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

While I’ve traveled many places this past year, there’s one place I now call home – Yokosuka, Japan! 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”

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”

Love, Pray, Eat… Or Something Like That: Bali

Ahh Bali, my final destination on this short journey! Well, except I did return to Japan after, but that’s another story. Bali was certainly the “pray” part of my trip. My flight left Thailand around 10 PM, leaving me with a 5 hour layover in Singapore throughout the night. Upon arrival, I tried to findContinue reading “Love, Pray, Eat… Or Something Like That: Bali”

Love, Pray, Eat… Or Something Like That: Thailand

Okay, so I was kind of going to claim Japan as my “Eat” category, but if I’m going to be honest, I ate so much EVERYWHERE. No shame, I couldn’t help it! I am going to classify Thailand as the “Love” because I 1) loved it here and 2) felt so much love from allContinue reading “Love, Pray, Eat… Or Something Like That: Thailand”

Love, Pray, Eat… Or Something Like That: Japan

Hi everyone! Recently I took my first solo travel trip abroad. I learned some amazing things and have some great stories from this trip that I thought I’d share with others! Of course, there are plenty of other stories, but I’ll just highlight some significant ones here, starting with Japan! So for a start, IContinue reading “Love, Pray, Eat… Or Something Like That: Japan”
