Therapy centers treat soldiers overseas
The armed forces often face the dangers of war, which can sometimes lead to devastating injuries. As a result of this problem, there are many physicians overseas to help those who are injured in combat.
Head injuries and concussions are a common occurrence during battle, according to the Marine Corps Times. There are some centers near bases that offer physical and occupational therapy to troops that have been injured.
Commander Keith Stuessi recently helped open a 2,000-square foot center that is specifically designated for therapy at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan. When the center first opened on August 26th, the first week saw 170 patients. The facility is staffed with people who have physical and occupational therapy jobs.
Stuessi explained that part of the center's goal is to help bring as many troops back to duty as possible in a timely manner.
"We are trying to keep Marines and sailors in the fight out here," Stuessi told the news provider.
The military has been posting openings for physical and occupational therapy jobs to help treat the armed forces.
