Physical Therapy Month
Physical therapy addresses the illnesses or injuries that limit a person's abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. PTs use an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan and, when necessary, incorporate the results of laboratory and imaging studies like X-rays, CT-scan, or MRI findings. Electrodiagnostic testing (e.g., electromyograms and nerve conduction velocity testing) may also be used. PT management commonly includes prescription of or assistance with specific exercises, manual therapy, and manipulation, mechanical devices such as traction, education, electrophysical modalities which include heat, cold, electricity, sound waves, radiation, assistive devices, prostheses, orthoses, and other interventions. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles, providing services to individuals and populations to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the lifespan. This includes providing treatment in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease, or environmental factors. Functional movement is central to what it means to be healthy. Physical therapy is a professional career which has many specialties including musculoskeletal, orthopedics, cardiopulmonary, neurology, endocrinology, sports medicine, geriatrics, pediatrics, women's health, wound care and electromyography. Neurological rehabilitation is, in particular, a rapidly emerging field. PTs practice in many settings, such as private-owned physical therapy clinics, outpatient clinics or offices, health and wellness clinics, rehabilitation hospitals facilities, skilled nursing facilities, extended care facilities, private homes, education, and research centers, schools, hospices, industrial and these workplaces or other occupational environments, fitness centers and sports training facilities.
Physical therapists also practice in the non-patient care roles such as health policy, health insurance, health care administration and as health care executives. Physical therapists are involved in the medical-legal field serving as experts, performing peer review and independent medical examinations.
We would like to spotlight our county's Physical Therapist and thank her for all of her hard work and dedication!
Jennifer O’Neal graduated from West Virginia University with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology in 2007 and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2010. Prior to coming to Logan County Schools in 2018, she worked for Logan Physical Therapy and WV Birth to Three. She also currently works for Trinity Healthcare Services during the summer. Jennifer is married to Luke O’Neal and she has two children, Julianna and Lawson, who attend Logan Middle School and Holden Elementary. She is passionate about helping kids achieve their full functional ability and makes sure every child she interacts with knows that they are loved. You will often find her smiling in the center of a group of kids, being silly on the playground, or cheering loudly when a goal is accomplished! She feels very fortunate to be able to do a job she adores in her very own hometown.

Just because you have an assigned school nurse that does not mean they are the only one that can come to your school. ALL SCHOOL NURSES CAN GO TO ANY SCHOOL AND FUNCTION WITHIN THEIR CAPACITY. We have emergencies that come up last minute and sometimes another nurse has to fill-in for another school.
Remember these are itinerant school nurses and can be moved according to need or they can remain at there home school and be assigned other services by the Building Administrator, Director of Student Services or the Superintendent of Schools.
"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
