These past few months we’ve reached out through the Twitterverse and asked members of the rehab community what inspires them. In honor of this month’s theme being inspiration, we thought we’d share some of the tweeted responses:

@WebPT When I started out as a PT, it was the fact that someone who was bedridden for a while can learn to walk again with our management

@WebPT the care that I have received from my fellow #PT‘s as I recover from #GuillainBarre inspires me to continue my fight to #OvercomeGBS
