Noah Arenson from our Mesa Contact Physical Therapy clinic had the privilege of being interviewed by Masters in Healthcare to discuss his career as a physical therapist, and he was featured on their website!
Below is Noah’s interview:
What is it about your job that keeps you at it day in and day out?
Arenson: “There is an incredible variety of conditions that we treat at Contact Physical Therapy. I enjoy the investigative approach of rehabilitation to determine the unique origin of each patient symptoms and creating a treatment plan to meet their goals. It is very satisfying to assist patients on their journey to effectively diminishing their pain and restoring their function.”
How do you stay up-to-date in the field and maintain professionalism?
Arenson: “I am blessed to have colleagues around me to bounce ideas off and review my documentation. We also live in a state that offers a variety of continuing education opportunities to expand our treatment approaches.”
What’s one of the most memorable experiences you’ve had, either as a student or in your professional career?
Arenson: “There have been several instances in my career where a patient initially is very doubtful that physical therapy would have any impact on their particular issue. To see them leave the clinic with appreciable improvement and knowledge to continue gains on their own is very rewarding.”
What advice do you have for people just starting their education or their professional career?
Arenson: “Volunteer at a variety of health professional settings. Get an appreciation of the demands of a variety of professions and see if they match your individual strengths and interests.”
