When you decided to get the online physical therapy program, then you have to know that there will be some documentary requirements which you will have to complete and fill out. Such requirements usually differ from one school to another. When you complete everything, you have to make sure that you prepared for that emotionally and mentally. Getting the online physical therapy degree will not make you very exhausted physically, but you still will need to be strong and prepared for difficulties.  Veterans are different, and therefore use different methods of coping. In the face of tragedy, a veteran is more likely to use humor as a coping mechanism than anything else. Civilians are not allowed to hike but are welcome to volunteer and/or meet us at the stops along the way!!!

The mission of the Silkies Hike is to bring veterans together with laughter and camaraderie, to provide a day of therapy. These hikes support and spread our bottom line: “put the gun back on safe, put it back on the nightstand, and stick around a bit longer.”Because most patients actually see therapist soon after surgery or right after they have experienced an injury, they are often suffering with high levels of emotional stress and pain. It is very important that the physical therapist assistant has a genuine desire to help people, and also has the ability to help patients feel comfortable with their treatment. It is essential that the therapy assistant knows how to work as part of a team, not only with physical therapists, but also with other health care employees. A physical therapy assistant is a licensed health care professional that has received special training. These health care assistants work with physical therapists in treating patients who have physical disabilities and injuries. Many treatments are designed to relive pain and improve the patient’s mobility.

Civilians: Please meet us for the initial festivities and also advance to the locations if you’d like to receive your veterans with cheers, hugs, kisses, photos, videos, screaming, yelling, and excessive PDA.
