The Physical Therapy Department we partner with in Takoradi sees up to twenty cases a day. Of these, common ailments include Bells' palsy, Erb's palsy, and strokes. On your physical therapy internship in Ghana, you'll find that rehabilitation here uses gym equipment to teach patients exercises they can practice in the comfort of their own home. Spend your time off exploring Ghana’s magnificent, awe-inspiring sites; ancient waterfalls, remote villages, and golden beaches are just a handful of choices you’ll have.
