My experience also enabled me to understand how an individual’s mentality, anatomy, and body movements can contribute to the overall progress of healing as it requires a lot of patience and motivation. Therefore, pursuing a degree in Kinesiology would be my greatest desire as I want to help individuals heal through methods of physical movements and because I believe it encompasses two of my favourite subjects, science and physical education. Throughout my experience in high school, my interest in health and physical activities has only grown stronger. As an illustration, over the past four years, I have been involved in various sports such as the varsity girl’s soccer team, varsity girl’s flag football team, and badminton

Every morning I wake up each and every morning wanting to have a deeper revelation of my purpose in life, not only in the natural, but in the spiritual as well. My calling in my career is very important to me because I am gifted in certain areas of my life. I am striving to be positive and look at situations with a positive attitude and to not sulk in it. This is having higher thinking and higher ways. Every time I discover something about myself, it brings me a form of joy to help me move forward and rise. Within the field of Kinesiology, I think of how this health science field can be expanded with deeper knowledge and research. I love the hands on work experience that this field has to offer, even in the sports division. I desire to be in a demanding field to further the health science research of Kinesiology and my goal is to take and to use all of my gained

Throughout the past eight weeks of this class, I have pushed myself to grow in ways that I needed to and got to see some results from it. Not only was this growth in my physical fitness, there was also psychological growth. Though my results were not incredible or life altering, they were sufficient enough to make me happy and for me to notice a difference. Over the past eight weeks we have seen neuromuscular responses and adaptions and how they have led to strength gains. Endocrine responses and how over the eight weeks produced specific hormones that influenced or made an impact on strength, energy, and endurance. Lastly, but most importantly cardiorespiratory responses, and how these changes led to an increase in fitness and how aerobic
Carolyn had concerns about a throbbing pain in her neck, shoulders and upper/lower back. She also had concerns about a slight pain in her wrist.

In the field of Sports Medicine, we focus on assisting individuals who want to remain physically fit as well as individuals who are trying to sustain, or regain, their prime athletic performance levels. We accomplish this through the use of injury recovery treatments and/or injury prevention techniques. From elite professional athletes to individuals who just enjoy working out at their local gym after work, the numerous benefits that Sports Medicine can provide are becoming apparent to individuals throughout the country. By implementing injury prevention techniques and, when necessary, recovery treatments, our patients remain flexible and active, which allows them to meet their personal and/or professional competition, and fitness goals.
Growing up surrounded by athletes, injuries seemed endless. Through my participation in sports—swimming, volleyball, and waterpolo—I have been exposed to various bruises, fractures, sprains, and scars. Seeing players get hurt, and getting wounded myself, I felt the desire to find ways to alleviate the pain. Asking my parents, siblings, school nurses, and coaches for help, I was enlightened with a range of treatments: “RICE”, stretching, and specialized exercises. Despite learning new ways to heal or ease the pain, I still felt the hunger to discover more treatments, igniting my desire to be a Physical Therapist.

Like a vast amount of exercise science students here at The Ohio State University, I chose the major as a stepping stone, hoping to move on to physical therapy school upon graduation. My anticipated graduation date was spring of 2017 and I had hoped to start PT school the following fall. PT was a career I had been interested in since high school where I had a few injuries that required me to be a patient. While PT school has been the goal for most of my college career, I always kept an eye out for other careers as potential fall back plans or alternative routes. One of those fall back plans was to pursue further education in the field of exercise science. Due to this, I felt the need to explore the field further and did so by volunteering in research.
