A Blog is Born

It is with great gratitude to God and tremendous joy that I share with you and announce the birth of the Revitalize Physical Therapy blog. The reason I have decided to blog is in order to share with you, dear reader, the latest medical technology regarding pelvic floor physical therapy, interesting scientific advances, and general health and wellness related information. I believe that in order to truly be a fantastic health care provider, something which I strive to be, it is important for clinicians to actively pursue knowledge and evidenced based research in order to best care for his or her patients.
I am a self-proclaimed PT aficionado, and I own that with pride. I browse PubMed and the NIH websites for fun. (Don’t worry, I engage in other more traditional recreational activities for fun as well ☺) I enjoy learning immensely, and I was that girl in your class who sat in the front row and asked questions on a regular basis. When I was a student physical therapist, one of my excellent and inspirational clinical instructors, Mike Formisano, helped me realize that this is one of my biggest strengths, and he encouraged me to continue being a life-long learner for many years to come.

Writing this blog is one way that I strive to accomplish that goal. It challenges me to keep up with medical advances and research. Routine and status quo are not options, especially when the health of my patients is at stake. So as I journey further into the exciting world of science and studies, I invite you to join me on my trip. In addition, I plan on sharing ideas and insights from other bloggers or various credible resources that I hope you will find interesting. I hope to share a bi-monthly blog post with you, and I invite you to request ideas or topics that you want me to discuss. Please email me at riva@reviatlizephysicaltherapy.com with any suggestions, articles, or areas of interest. I look forward to expanding your mind and satisfying your intellectual hunger. And if I happen to convert you into a PT aficionado in the process, well then welcome to the amazing club.
