    New Consumer Resource: PT's Role in Treating Age-related Mobility Challenges

    APTA recently launched its Fit For Life page on MoveForwardPT.com, which features stories of member physical therapists, the mobility challenges they have encountered over the years, and how they've stayed physically active and fit. The page was developed to support an upcoming media initiative targeting consumers in their 40s, 50s, and 60s about the importance of physical activity during these years and a physical therapist's role in treating age-related mobility challenges. APTA's goal is to get consumers to view physical therapists as allies who understand mobility challenges and as the "go-to" resource when it comes to mobility.

    Will these stories about the clients that P Ts have treated, or will they be about the mobility impairments that P Ts have personally sustained?

    These are nice stories. Short, dealing with personal experiences, and putting in a plug for the industry. Maybe you could put in some stories of PTAs, as well. Mark Atkinson, SPTA
