DPT Internship Dry Needling

by / August 24th, 2017 / Comments Off on DPT Internship Dry Needling

Dry needling has become one of the tools utilized by physical therapists all throughout the world. One of the ways dry needling is used is in addition to electrical stimulation. Below is a photo of one of the physical therapists at my clinical internship site, Viverant in Vadnais Heights, MN, practicing his dry needling with e-stim skills. I am personally thinking about getting certified in dry needling after I earn my doctorate in physical therapy. Learning continues long after graduation with new skills and techniques - a fundamental value that CSS instills in you while attending CSS - the Love of Learning. Read the rest of this entry »

Internship – Minnesota Twins

by / August 23rd, 2017 / Comments Off on Internship – Minnesota Twins

Throughout my first terminal internship for the DPT program, Viverant in Vadnais Heights, MN, has provided me with some really fantastic opportunities to not only refine my physical therapy skills, but to also network and make the most of my experience here. I have been lucky enough to visit a few of the Viverant locations, work with multiple PT's in the area, treat young athletes to professional athletes, post-surgical to prehab patients of all ages, and to observe surgery (coming soon). In addition, I've had the opportunity to work with Twins players and make it to a few Twins games thanks to tickets through Viverant, where I was able to network other Viverant employees. Almost 7 weeks through and this internship has done an awesome job at helping me grow as a prospective doctorate of physical therapy in so many facets. These internships are such an integral part of our DPT program at CSS, which in the long run helps to put us in successful positions post grad. Read the rest of this entry »
