Kinsey’s Story: Inpatient Rehab at Children’s Specialty Hospital at LifeScape
For the Capaldo family of Sioux Falls, Christmastime brings back memories of the tumultuous final months of 2015. It was during that holiday season that their daughter Kinsey was fighting to recover from a mysterious, life-threatening illness. It was the year they happily spent Christmas at Children’s Specialty Hospital at LifeScape—happy, because their daughter was alive and recovering.
What inspired Becky Schmitz to choose a career in physical therapy
I became interested in physical therapy when I was a kid. My youngest sister was born with cerebral palsy when I was 7 years old. For the first three years of her life she received birth-to-three therapy services in our home and daycare, so that meant multiple times a week I saw physical and occupational therapists working with her, teaching her to roll, sit, and stand.
