So recently I have found myself listening to a lot of Johnny Cash. Here are some Johnny Cash songs that I think are great for PTs:
"I Walk the Line" - This classic hit is all about staying on the straight and narrow, which could be a metaphor for the dedication and discipline required to excel as a physical therapist. Also, think balance exercises.
"Ring of Fire" - This upbeat song about falling in love could also be interpreted as a metaphor for the passion and enthusiasm that many physical therapists bring to their work.
"A Boy Named Sue" - This humorous song tells the story of a man who grows up tough because of his unusual name, which could be a reminder of how PTs (and our patients) must develop resilience and perseverance.
"Man in Black" - This song is a tribute to those who are "fighting back" against weakness and functional deficits. I know it’s a stretch… did you see what I did there. Stretch… ba dum tsh.
"Get Rhythm" - This lively song is all about finding your groove and keeping things moving, which could be a great motto for physical therapists because we help our patients regain their strength, mobility, and independence.
No real rhyme or reason for this just for fun… Been listening to a lot of Johnny and thought I would give his songs a little PT twist.
