SISTER KENNY

Note: Wikipedia

  1. Elizabeth Kenny (20 September 1880 - 30 November 1952) was an unaccredited Australian nurse who promoted a controversial new approach to the treatment of poliomyelitis. Her findings ran counter to conventional medical wisdom; they demonstrated the need to exercise muscles affected by polio instead of immobilizing them. Kenny’s principles of muscle rehabilitation became the foundation of physical therapy, or physiotherapy. She was not a member of a religious order; in some commonwealth nations, the title “sister” is applied to senior qualified nurses and does not necessarily indicate a religious vocation.
