Intern Spotlight

Julia Mabe

Julia Mabe, a graduating third-year Occupational Therapy (OT) student at
the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), recently created a Functional Movement Assessment (FMA) for the MUSC Wellness Center’s “Fight Back” program as part of her program’s Capstone Project.  

The FMA was designed to gauge not
only physical ability in Wellness Center clients but also personal opinions the clients may have about their fitness journey. Clients will be assessed before they begin the exercise program and
after completing it to determine any noticeable differences. Mabe says she’s already seen significant improvements in overall client fitness in the short time the FMA has been utilized. 

“I’m so happy knowing that the Wellness Center will be able to use my movement assessment with future clients,” she said.  

The 26-year-old recently graduated from MUSC’s College of Health Professions and has worked on her Capstone Project since her second year of OT school.  

The Capstone Project is a hallmark of MUSC OT students. This research-centric project requires a significant amount of time dedicated to not only researching their chosen topic, but also testing and implementing it in a conducive setting. For Mabe, that setting was a boxing studio with breast cancer survivors.  

She noticed how more people seem to come to the Wellness Center for exercise akin to Physical Therapy (PT), something she wanted to remedy by introducing some OT into the mix.  

“The best way to describe the difference between PT and OT is that PT helps with movement and strengthening while OT helps you get out of bed comfortably. Can you walk your dog? Can you get dressed on your own? So, it’s more of the functional side, but they work really well together,” she said.  

Being familiar with the Breast Cancer Survivors Fit Club (SFC), Mabe set out to introduce its members – who go through exercise, body composition, and much more – to a few more OT strategies than usual.  

“Quite a few women who have breast cancer may feel uncomfortable with their body image. Getting dressed, exercising, these are all areas we hope to address through programs like Survivors Fit Club and the follow-up program Fight Back,” she added.  

There are four different categories within Mabe’s FMA. These determine how each participant can perform everyday movements including: an overhead squat, getting up off the floor, shoulder mobility and range-of-motion, and overall balance.  

Throughout her project she worked under the Wellness Center’s Clinical Exercise Program Coordinators Cindi Day and Chrissie Wojciechowski and had nothing but praise for the two.  

Day and Wojciechowski oversee programs like SFC, Fight Back, Rock Steady Boxing, Prostate Cancer Survivors Strength Camp (SSC), Rheumor Has It, and many others that make significant impacts on the physical and mental health of their clients.  

“Some of the questions we ask at both the start and end of the program are ‘do you feel comfortable coming to the Wellness Center?’ or ‘do they feel good about their nutrition?’ or ‘Do you have a good opinion of your body?’ and the scores significantly changed over time," Mabe said. "At first they were so-so, but they shot up by the program’s end.”  

Day plans to utilize Mabe’s FMA in all future installments of “Fight Back” and is grateful to add such a valuable resource to their clinical strategy.  

For anyone looking to join a supportive exercise program, Mabe recommends talking to your doctor about potential referrals for options like SFC and SSC.
