    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    There's been a lot of negativity lately about the debt we are facing and other issues faced by the field of PT. So just to lighten the mood and remind you the fun part of being a PT :)

    Top 10 Rules for Physical Therapy By your Therapist

    1. Never say "I can't" because you'll do it anyway.
    2. Never say, "it's easy" because we'll just make it harder
    3. Never say, "I want to go home" because you'll stay longer
    4. Never lose count because you'll start at one again
    5. Never complain because we never listen.
    6. Never argue because you'll never win.
    7. Never scream or cry because it only encourages us.
    8. Never look like you're enjoying it because we'll put a stop to it.
    9. Never hold your breath because if you pass out and die, we have to fill out the paperwork.
    10 Never lie or cheat because we know the truth and you will live to regret it.

    Physical Therapist

    A couple of women were playing golf one sunny Saturday morning. The first of the twosome teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.
    Indeed, the ball hit one of the men, and he immediately clasped his hands together at his crotch, fell to the ground, and proceeded to roll around in evident agony. The woman rushed down to the man and immediately began to apologize. She said,
    "Please allow me to help. I'm a physical therapist and know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow."
    "Ummph, oooh, nnooo, I'll be all right...I'll be fine in a few minutes," he replied breathlessly as he remained in the fetal position, still clasping his hands together at his crotch. But she persisted, and he finally allowed her to help him. She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, she loosened his pants, and she put her hands inside. She began to massage him. She then asked him, "How does that feel?"
    To which he replied, "It feels great, but my thumb still hurts like hell."

    A man goes to the PT and says to the PT:
    "It hurts when I press here" (pressing his side)
    "And when I press here" (pressing the other side)
    "And here" (his leg)
    "And here, here and here" (his other leg, and both arms)

    So the PT examined him all over and finally discovered what was wrong... "You've got a broken finger!
