Physical therapy key to movement


It rained very hard last night and left with it a thick stagnant air. Normally conditions like that make it hard to sleep but I was out like a light. The morning began with a visit to the OR for a ped's case and we then moved into the patient floors for more rounding. I met up with Jen, a physical therapist who just arrived from Handicap International. This is her second visit to Haiti She said most of the cases of rehabilitation are prevented by the Haitian's simple fear of moving after surgery. Most of the time, steady movement is all it takes to begin recovery.
