Team #CR042520PTGVSU will be working in ISL partner communities and institutions in Costa Rica to provide physical therapy services to those in need. While in Costa Rica, you will also have the opportunity to learn valuable skills and explore the cultural landscape in a meaningful way.

About Physical Therapy

ISL’s physical therapy program is interactive and highly specialized. Volunteers will observe and learn manual techniques and tests for evaluating patients from communities in need, where high tech equipment, such as x-rays and MRI testing, is not available.  This is accomplished under the guidance and supervision of local physical therapy professionals, who make sure all evaluations and treatments are performed accurately and appropriately.
