Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies

I’m lumping physical, speech and occupational therapy all into one big group here. For those of you who don’t know the difference, physical works with legs and backs, occupational with hands and arms, and speech with speech, swallowing and higher cognitive functions. These are the people to see if you have questions about whether something is safe, be it walking a patient or letting them eat on their own. These are also the people to watch when it comes to moving patients or assisting folks with everything from walking to speaking. Move like a physical therapist and you will never hurt your back.
