Manage episode 282799566 series 2850646
In the middle of an existential crisis, with her parents halfway around the world, Vicky Johnson, PT, FFMT, FAAOMPT stumbled upon a physical therapy program in the back of a magazine and applied. As luck would have it, this program in Georgia happened to have rare access to a woman in high demand: Maggie Knott. One of the early architects of PNF, Maggie's program in California had a 12 year wait list. Vicky moved to California and managed to find a way into the program. Barely out of physical therapy school, Vicky would soon launch both a private practice and a continuing education company teaching PNF across the country that they would name "The Institute of Physical Art."
Today, The IPA teaches around the world and IPA-branded clinics are popping up across the country. In this episode, Vicky describes the learning strategies and life perspectives that led to her rapid success - and provides insights into what physical therapists should do moving into the future.
