A new column, dubbed Physiotherapy in Action, geared at highlighting the benefits associated with physiotherapy treatment is the latest addition to the Dominica Vibes news portal.
The articles will be written by Dr Lucia Corriette, a qualified physiotherapist with close to twenty years (20) experience having first graduated in 1997 from the School of Physiotherapy in Jamaica and a doctorate in physiotherapy from Utica College in the USA.
This new column will feature conditions that are seen by physiotherapists; including strokes, pneumonia, sprains, strains, disc herniations, fractures and cerebral palsy, among others.
It will explain the condition, benefits associated with physiotherapy treatment and other forms of management, all with a view to enhancing the readers’ understanding of the topic.
The articles will be published twice monthly – 15th and 30th.
Dr Corriette has worked in The Bahamas, St Lucia and the British Virgin Islands and now owns a small private physiotherapy clinic on River Street in Roseau.
