Intern Reflection Paper
The internship that I acquired during the summer of 2010 at the Greenwood Sports and Industrial Rehabilitation Center (GSIRC), allowed me to gain an immeasurable amount of experience during my tenure at this facility. Within this period, the exposure to new concepts within the physical therapy industry allowed me to observe and work hands on with patients of all ages and disabilities that exposed me to various treatment plans and programs to restore client’s mobility. The essential Physical Education and Exercise Science (PEES) courses taken at Lander University were beneficial to my academic knowledgebase, which prepared me and developed me for the opportunity within the physical therapy discipline.

The course that corresponds to these particular movements is kinesiology. Having a broad understanding of kinesiology help me understand how certain exercises are perform and how to demonstrate the movements to patients who are less knowledgeable with a workout. Majority of the patients I worked with were in the elderly age and usually have a sedentary lifestyle. Aging and Fitness, a PEES course, taught me how to work with elderly individuals. What is noticeable with working with older people is the rapid fatigue that takes place during physical activities. Some of the key things that were mention in Aging and Fitness were to always keep clients hydrated and keep the mood pleased for patients to maintain a stable administrative organization. In the GSIRC, the music was a major factor that kept the patients mood in great spirit during their visits. While I assisted...
