I can take complex issues and explain in them in such a manner as to only build greater understanding. Let me show you!
As one of the few physical therapists in the country who is also a certified Pedorthist, I have worked to blend two professions into one. To accomplish this I utilize research from Physical Therapy, Pedorthics, Podiatry, as well as orthopedics in an effort to pinpoint and summarize what the mass of literature says, which I then integrate into my teaching (rather than merely quoting the research). In other words my goal is to present an evidence-based evaluation and treatment approach in such a way that appeals to clinicians because they can utilize the information quickly, i.e., on Monday morning in the clinic. Producing outcomes and helping to improve the quality of life of my patients is just as much a part of my daily work as it is for all who attend this course. So I practice and live by what I teach. And since I only see patients in my clinic who are in need of foot and ankle rehab, this is my area of focus in teaching. -Joshua Bailey, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, Cped
