Physical therapy can be a painful and frustrating experience, but it doesn’t have to be. And when you live in Louisiana, it’s pretty easy to turn a therapy session into a dance party!
Physical therapist Hunter Crist was working with one of his elderly patients when he came up with the perfect way to help her have fun while they worked on her physical ailments. He put on his dancing shoes, turned on some Cajun music, and asked the lady for a dance!
There’s nothing quite like dancing to make a person feel young again, and you can tell from watching the video that both Hunter and his patient are having a grand ol’ time!

The video has quickly gone viral and has been viewed millions of times in less than 24 hours!
People are loving it for a variety of reasons. Some say they love seeing a therapist who will take the time to show his patient love and kindness (and fun) instead of just going through the motions. Others have been touched by the way the divides of age and race completely disappear when the two hold hands and begin to dance around the room.
One thing’s for sure, though: if I ever need physical therapy, this is exactly how I want to do it!
Did you love watching this physical therapist and his patient dancing as much as we did? So share this!
