Today’s blog post comes from copywriters Charlotte Bohnett and Erica Cohen.

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games kicked off in London this past weekend, and we’re pretty excited about the events. As physical therapists, many of you have treated Olympic athletes (maybe you’re even treating a future Olympian right now). So we want to hear from you: what’s your greatest Olympic moment?

Our very own Brian Kunich, PT, will be watching one of his former patients compete this summer with the US Women's Soccer team. Here’s what he had to say about the experience:

“As therapists, we typically meet athletes during a low point, having sustained an injury. It’s a great feeling to see all of their efforts in the clinic translate into performance on the field as they compete at the highest level. I’ll be rooting for USWNT to bring home their third consecutive Olympic gold medal.”

Our Member, Steve Dischiavi, MPT, ATC, MTC, CSCS, has also treated Olympians and the Florida Panthers hockey team. Pretty impressive, eh?

And, as if that wasn’t cool enough, Probility Physical Therapy is currently treating Jake Herbert, an American amateur wrestler and 2012 Olympian. He competes on August 11th. Go Jake!

While we here in our marketing lair at WebPT won’t be doing any office olympics, we’ll definitely be watching the games closely. Here’s what we’re looking forward to:

  • Charlotte (copywriter): I absolutely love the opening ceremonies. In terms of events, I enjoy men and women’s swimming as well as gymnastics and soccer. Oh, and trampolining—quite the sport.
  • Erica (copywriter): I was about to answer with figure skating, but apparently I’m already past London and onto Sochi. For Summer, it’s got to be gymnastics—women’s floor and balance beam.
  • Jenny (marketing and events specialist): I'm looking forward to both the men and women's tennis and gymnastics events. It will be exciting to see how Andy Murray does. I'm definitely rooting for him.
  • Lindsay (marketing and sales specialist): Men and women’s soccer; although, I’ll be cheering more for the women as their US team actually qualified.
  • Ed (graphic designer): Soccer and swimming.
  • Ryan (senior graphic designer): This would be so much easier for Winter sports—biathlon (skiing + shooting + awesomeness). But for summer, it’s anything that goes down in the Thunderdome (aka the velodrome).
  • Mike (digital and product marketing specialist): During the Summer olympics, I only watch track and field. Oh, and swimming—but only to watch Michael Phelps win.
  • Andy (SEO specialist): Field hockey. Do I need to say more?
  • Bennett (intern): Basketball, because I love basketball.

How are you and your clinic getting pumped up for the Olympics? What events are you excited about?

    My Favorite Moments of 2014

    Holy lightning-fast 2014, Batman! I can’t believe that it’s almost time to ring in 2015. But before I Auld Lang Syne 2014 and map out my new year's resolutions, I’m going to reflect on this past year, because, honestly, it was a monumental one for me—both personally and professionally. Here are my highlights: Inc. 500 Two Years Running In 2013, WebPT ranked as #233 on Inc. 500’s list of the fastest-growing companies in the United States. The …

    Thankful Nation: What Rehab Therapists Are Grateful for in 2017

    It’s that time of year—time to gobble up some turkey, because it’s all about that baste (buh-dum-tss!). All jokes aside, Thanksgiving isn’t just about stuffing your face ’til your jeans are too tight. In fact, the best part of the holiday is time spent with family—whether it’s the family we choose or the one we’re stuck with. With that in mind, we turned to Rehab Nation, WebPT’s online community for all things rehab therapy-related, to find out …

    Spooky, Scary, or Just Plain Fun: Halloween Traditions Across Our Community

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved Halloween. Sure, I’ve been a cat more times than I can count—not the most original or frightening costume, to be certain—but there’s just something exhilarating about donning a mask (or face makeup in my case) and exploring the things that go bump in the night. After all, the ancient Celts—who celebrated Samhain, what The History Channel credits as the “ancient origins of Halloween”—believed that on October 31, “the …

    Can you Smell What the RockTape is Cooking? Hint: It’s Both Educational and Fun

    Okay, so Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson might have been cooking something at one point or another. And although I’m not exactly sure what that means—there’s got to be a connection in there somewhere—I am sure of the fact that RockTape has been cooking up some valuable CEU courses. As a therapist, your love of learning is second nature. And as such, you probably already know that CEU courses help you stay up to date on the latest …

    Happy National PT Month 2017!

    When you think about October, you likely think of kids leaping into piles of crunchy, dried leaves, a freshly carved jack-o-lantern on your front porch, and maybe a spooky meme or two . But at WebPT, we’re thinking about physical therapists. (To be fair, PTs are pretty much always on our minds.) That’s because the APTA has dubbed October  National Physical Therapy Month , and we think it’s the perfect reason to celebrate professionals who are dedicated …
