    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

DPT Plaster Casting Lab

In a recent Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) course, we had a lab focused on how to make plaster casts (negative casts) for foot orthotics. These casts are often made to assist in the creation of an in-shoe orthotic for folks with functional or structural foot deformities that will require a foot orthotic. Below is a neat video about 13 minutes in length that does a good job at explaining the purpose of plaster casting, as well as providing a demonstration of creating a negative cast (what we did in lab). VIDEO HERE.
