    APTA and WebMD Partner to Provide PT Perspective

    WebMD and APTA are working together to make it easier than ever for the public to understand how physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) can help address a wide range of health issues.

    Under a new content partnership, APTA members and APTA Media Corps experts will provide content to WebMD's "Answers" page, a popular area of the WebMD website that allows consumers to post questions and connect with relevant health information. APTA will provide new content to the page at least once a month, and will link content to the association's MoveForwardPT.com consumer-focused site.

    APTA has partnered with WebMD in other efforts, including providing WebMD with PT experts to serve in the fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, pain management, and sports medicine communities. WebMD also offers a page focused on physical therapy and pain management.

    Will this partnership be educating people about PT's role in wound management? Most people have no idea we can and should be involved.

    Would be appropriate for this to cover neuro rehabilitation as well.
