I've been living in Duluth for three years now, and have enjoyed everything about it.

Strengthen Those Fingers!

IMG_3125 IMG_3124 IMG_3123

This is some of the things we worked on in my Assessments and Interventions Lab.

We learned/practiced various strengthening exercises with the Theraband and finger/hand strengthening with Theraputty and the red net. We learned how to design a therapy plan for different clients using these techniques (and many others). As a therapist, we need to make sure that we are not having the client work to hard, but we also want to have it be a challenge. The “just right challenge” is when we find the perfect balance. Many of the techniques we learned could also be given as “homework” to the client, so when they are watching TV, or just hanging out they can be proactive on getting back their strength so they will increase their function.
