Hi! I am a recently accepted PT student and am looking at getting a new laptop for PT school. I am not the most tech-savvy person so I am looking for any advice possible. I've heard really good things about the iPad Pro but am hesitant on switching from a laptop to a tablet. All advice/insight is welcome!

Hi all, I'm a 26 year old nontraditional trying to apply to PT school. I graduated with my BS in Industrial Design in 2017 and spent the last few years soul searching. I had only started exploring PT and shadowing in March (totaled 8 hours before COVID shut everything down.)

I was missing all the sciences because my degree didn't require them, but thankfully have 1 Psych, 2 English... Nontraditional Pre-PT, currently completing pre-reqs, should I apply this cycle?

Authors: Gatz M, Betsch M, Quack V, Bejder L, Schrading S, Tingart M, Dirrichs T Abstract BACKGROUND: Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. Monitoring therapy effects is challenging with conventional B-mode ultrasound.

Up to now little is known about SWE features for therapy monitoring in plantar fasciitis. We evaluated the clinical effects of a 3-month physical therapy based treatment and its influence on B-mode and SWE ultrasound findings in patien...
