  • Re: cervical radiculopathy

    Hi,&nbsp; First,&nbsp;a thorough patient history is a must.&nbsp; Is there trauma involved?,&nbsp; If so, you should have imaging and perform basic screening tests for the cervical spine, asking questions about cardinal signs, ''red flags/past medical history''.&nbsp; Is there past history of Cancer, Osteoporosis, Oral Steroids?&nbsp;&nbsp; ...

  • Re: video podcast

    You're a future thinker.&nbsp; They will be viable tools, probably sooner than later; especially, since paper handouts get lost or tossed.&nbsp;&nbsp; The video streaming would probably increase adult learning using ''audio'', &nbsp;''2-D'', and ''motion''.&nbsp;&nbsp; If I were a large mult-center business, I'd consider advertising on it: as ...

  • Re: Physical therapists and treatment of the hand

    Sounds viable, but the PT cirriculum is pretty full already.&nbsp;&nbsp; If hands are your interest, why don't you consider going to work at a Clinic specializing in Hand Therapy.&nbsp;&nbsp; After a few years and some hours, you could sit for the CHT exam which is open to both OT's and PT's.&nbsp;&nbsp; It's&nbsp;the ''CHT''&nbsp;credential which ...

  • Re: Only advanced DPT worth anything

    CK, you&nbsp;must have a gifted intellect.&nbsp;&nbsp; Everyone I've spoken to about the tDPT&nbsp;from various Programs say they found it very challenging; mostly due to concurrently working full-time, learning Research/writing skills, and doing hours of homework per week.&nbsp;&nbsp; No one has told me it's been a breeze, and having a large ...

  • Re: Occupational therapy

  • Re: Chiropractic/Physical Therapy clinic

    The BEST answer to your question is to either read&nbsp;your State's Practice Acts for Physical Therapy and Chiropractic or call them and ask for clarification about these situations.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; OPINION only:&nbsp; It stands to reason that Whichever Practictioner initiated the Eval is the one in charge of the care.&nbsp; In Texas, if a PT ...

  • Re: RE:DPT vs MSPT vs PT vs etc

    The tDPT is&nbsp;becoming a necessity.&nbsp; Payors and Referral sources will be looking for it --maybe not now, but definitely by APTA's goal of 2020.&nbsp;&nbsp; Was&nbsp;wondering where it's ''published that&nbsp;experienced PT's will be grandfathered in''? &nbsp; I thought one of the driving forces for enrolling in&nbsp; tDPT programs was the ...
