Raleigh, NC, September 14, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Chris Hendricks Band (http://www.chrishendricksband.com), a rock band based in Raleigh, N.C., has announced that lead singer Chris Hendricks spoke to first year students of the school of physical therapy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Sept. 7. Hendricks spoke to the students about his experience with and the importance of physical therapy. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at an early age, he spent a large part of his childhood and teen years in physical therapy. Hendricks shared with students how early on he recognized the need for physical therapists to focus not only on providing therapy for patients during scheduled appointments, but on equipping patients with the necessary skills to help themselves outside of therapy sessions, as well as mentoring patients on an emotional and mental level.
“As someone with cerebral palsy who once aspired to become a physical therapist, I understand the significance of physical therapy and the power this role holds for really making a difference in someone’s life,” said Hendricks. “Effective physical therapists not only provide excellent care during appointments, but serve as a mentor to patients, helping them to gain more independence and work to improve their condition on their own. I encourage these students to take on and proactively own this important role.”
