Today's Washington Post features APTA members Carla Colella, PT, DPT, and APTA Media Corps member Mary Ann Wilmarth, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC, Certified MDT, in a MisFits column about getting back to regular activity following an injury with the help of a physical therapist. The author, who sustained an injury last year that kept him from exercising, says, "… as experts in movement issues, physical therapists get right to work helping patients like me by teaching us strengthening, stabilizing and stretching exercises even as they look for the problem." APTA's consumer Web site, www.MoveForwardPT.com, is also mentioned in the article, and readers are encouraged to visit the site to find a physical therapist near them.
