Each month we’ll bring you a note from one of our therapists. It might be something they’re reading, learning or just something they want to share.
This month’s note is from Mike Burggraaf, PT, DPT, LAT:
Normally in From the Therapist’s Desk, our staff members write about something that they have been studying or that has been on their minds that is physical therapy-related. This month is my turn to share my thoughts, and as I was contemplating what to write about, my mind kept wandering from physical therapy-specific issues to gratitude, specifically my gratitude for the Core Physical Therapy Family. I consider our amazing staff and all of the people that trust us to help them in their time of need as part of this Core Family. As a family we have lived through a crazy two and a half years where a lot of things in the world have seemed upside-down: pandemics, societal division, toxic politics, crazy dictators, and out-of-control inflation, just to name a few current issues. With all of that going on in the world, being a part of the Core Physical Therapy Family makes me feel grateful.
I am blessed to be a part of an incredible staff of people that come to work every day to live out the Core Purpose, which is to partner with you on your journey so that together we can help you achieve your best life. Every staff person is invested in bettering him or herself on a daily basis so that we are able to help our patients be the best version of themselves. Watching the dedication that our staff members put into honing their craft is awe-inspiring and one of my greatest sources of pride.
The most important part of the Core Family is all of you who have been or currently are our patients. We understand that there are a lot of physical therapists and other healthcare providers that you could choose to see, and that you choose to trust us with helping you through times of pain and difficulty in your lives is unbelievably humbling. Thank you for choosing us to partner with you on your journey and allowing us to be a part of your lives.
