Second-year DPT Students Volunteer their time!

Second-year students from the DPT program at the University of Puget Sound volunteered their time to assist with physical screenings for local marching musicians.  The Seattle Cascades is a drum and bugle corps composed of young adults who compete during the summer on their national tour. Throughout their training, individuals are held to a high standard of performance and injuries are becoming more common. The DPT students conducted various tests with the corps members to evaluate their movement and determine potential risks for injury. The data will be tracked at the end of the season to influence future training and hopefully result in fewer injuries so the performers can stay healthy and give their best to the show.
