Osaka Kawasaki Rehabilitation University Students Visit Fukuji & Lum
Fukuji and Lum Physical Therapy hosted physical therapist students and faculty members from Osaka Kawasaki Rehabilitation University on September 13, 2013. The students observed treatments such as joint mobilization, traction, and electrical stimulation at the Kaneohe clinic, participated in work conditioning exercises and training at WORC, and viewed aquatic therapy at the Pohai Nani pool.
The group of students from Japan were led by Sensei Rie Takakura, P.T., a part time resident of Hawaii, who has been teaching in Osaka for a year. Sensei Takakura wanted to expose her students to physical therapy done in the U.S. as physical therapists in Japan work primarily in hospitals. Privately owned physical therapy clinics are not available so we were more than happy to share a little of what we do with our colleagues from Japan.
