  • What Part Will You Play in the Future of PT?

    If you've read my last blog, which ranged from Facebook to Adweek, you may wonder what all that had to do with PT? Reasonable question actually. Physical therapy has the potential to impact greatly on improved health outcomes for every country. On the whole, we tend to be a reactive profession. We treat people once something has already happened. ...

  • To My Dissenters

    I have been accused of being ageist, burnt out and one anonymous reader said I should work in a fast food restaurant as a favor to the patients I see. A state licensing investigator even contacted me for something I wrote because a reader or two did not agree with my opinion. Perhaps I should stick with feel-good stories about how the PT and I ...

  • Truth in Treatment

    Since therapy has been focused on science-based evidence, I thought I would examine two treatments that are embraced by ''leaders'' in the therapy community. The first is visceral manipulation. The APTA took a hit for including this in the Section on Women's Health and I wanted to find out why. Jean-Pierre Barral, the French osteopath and PT, ...

  • Is 'ASPT' the Answer?

    ‘ASPT' should be the new designation for PTAs who have an associate's degree in physical therapy. The PTAs who have successfully challenged the testing and don't have a degree as a PTA should not be allowed to use this. These new letters will denote we have an associate's degree in physical therapy and will practice and be licensed as a physical ...

  • Dosage Matters

    There were two common themes at CSM this year: dosage and intensity. Every clinical presentation I attended mentioned one or the other. Intensity was defined as how hard the patient is working. Dosage referred to the number or reps or duration in the case of a static activity. In both cases, more is considered better. Last weekend I worked at a ...

  • I Passed the Boards!

    I finally received word on Friday that I passed the boards. The West Virginia Board of Physical Therapy sent me a letter, snail-mail style, to inform me that I can sleep soundly and stop worrying. A word of wisdom for anyone preparing to take the exam -- while I very much appreciated West Virginia permitting students to take the boards early, it ...
