Dolly’s Answer

Some challenges within the practice of physical therapy include treating patients who can be difficult to work due to mental status (dementia, Alzheimer's, brain trauma, etc), pain and personality differences. People who have pain are often fearful to fully participate as they do not want to exacerbate their pain. You have to be able to read people and their personalities quickly to establish good rapport and gain their trust so they will follow your treatment plan and be motivated to participate.
