Unsteady Uproot – “Love at first stretch” (Wednesday, June 26th)

A bouquet of tulips held up against a mural painted like a sunset over a farm.

I first fell in love with the magical field of physical therapy when I was a teen barely beginning my undergraduate education. I was experiencing some unfortunate repercussions from my childhood back injury and had reached out to a local chiropractor for help. I wasn't making much progress with her so she referred me to a local exercise physiologist who specialized in injury recovery. I checked his credentials and he held a degree in kinesiology.
