Hello! My name is Seth Bristol, and I love helping people. All my life I have found true joy and fulfillment in helping others who are unable to aid themselves. My goal for senior project is to experience the daily work life of a professional in the medical field. My choice for senior project is to shadow a physical therapist that is rehabilitating a football player through an ACL injury, and learn more about how a physical therapist would go about doing their job throughout a normal work day. I would like to reach a better understanding of the daily duties of a physical therapist.
My paper consists of a detailed discussion on how physical therapy is the most efficient and effective form of rehabilitation after surgery. I researched a plethora of statistics that prove the effectiveness of physical therapy. Physical therapy is not an easy job, as it requires you to properly treat possibly thousands of unique injuries. Every injury requires its own way of being assessed. Overall, physical therapy is an effective form of rehabilitation that helps many people all around the world.
I will be creating a logbook/scrapbook that describes every stage of a ACL injury recovery process. An ACL surgery will also be presented as I go over step by step on how it is being performed. I had a hard time learning exactly how the surgery is done but after a while I began to understand how it works. Properly discussing the surgery and going over the scrapbook is a foreseeable tribulation for me to deal with. My product will show that an amazing recovery is possible with physical therapy.
I would like to pursue a career in the medical field. Whether it be nursing, physical therapy, or surgery, I’d love to pursue a degree that allows me to help those in need. Physical therapy is a wonderful choice for senior project as it allows me to get hands on experience, where surgery would not. I learned that I love to help athletes recovering from injuries as I can relate to them because I am a current athlete. Physical therapy not only allows me to express my desire to help others in the future, but also creates new opportunities and open doors for me to explore.
At first I dreaded senior project and all the work that it entailed. I was very pessimistic about the entire ordeal and almost resented the school for it. It wasn’t until about halfway through my project that I learned how beneficial and meaningful senior project is to a young adult. The experiences and lessons learned throughout the entire process are ones that students should cherish as they provide real world knowledge. Thank you so much for taking precious time out of your day to learn a little about me and how I plan on preparing or the future!
