In honor of National Physical Therapy Month (yay October!), I will do some fun/informative posts.
So with that, here is my first fun post of the month: 10 signs that you’re a Pediatric Physical Therapist 😀
10- You are used to answering the question, “What?? Why do kids need physical therapy?” after someone asks what you do.
9- You get excited to wear fun socks to work because let’s face it, you barely wear your shoes at work anyway.
8- No matter how your hair is styled for the day, by the end of the day, your hair will be tied back in a pony tail.
7- You have your standard 5 nursery rhyme songs you know by heart and can sing all day long.
6- You have at least 1 toy rolling around in your car.
5- You’re a pro at walking in a squatting position and walking backwards down stairs.
4- You are able to use 1 toy for a minimum of 5 different activities.
3- You know how to sign for “more” and “all done.” (you probably just read this again and did the sign with your hands 🙂 )
2- You’ve developed cat-like reflexes to dodge flying toys and to catch falling children.
andddd last but not least!
1- You still get excited every time one of your patients reaches a new milestone 😀
Feel free to add to this list if you are a pediatric physical therapist!
