I've been a PT aide at a private outpatient clinic for 7 years now, and as an aide at this clinic we are required to treat patients with soft tissue massage in addition to ultrasound, stim, etc. With extensive experience with STM I've become extremely competent with treating patients, especially after receiving extremely rewarding feedback about my work from the patients. As this experience is a critical topic of strength that I'd like to focus on in many of my Essays, I am also aware that in typical PT settings, the idea of a PT aide physically working on patients is "illegal" or at least is not allowed. Considering this, is it or is it not a bad idea to write about this aspect of my experience as a PT aide? Thank you much in advance!
