  • Move Forward Radio Calls for Patient Stories

    Physical therapists watch incredible patient success stories unfold every day. Now it’s time to share those stories with a wider audience.

    APTA is seeking current or former physical therapy patients and clients to share their stories for upcoming episodes of Move Forward Radio, APTA’s official consumer-oriented radio show and podcast.

    Do you know of an inspirational physical therapy success story? E-mail Katie Kissal with basic details of the patient’s condition and age during treatment, as well as a brief description of the patient’s story (the patient’s condition before physical therapy and afterward). Do not include in the e-mail your patient’s name or any other identifiable information that would violate HIPAA’s patient privacy protections.

    Also, do not use the comments section of this post to volunteer for this opportunity.

    In the past, Move Forward Radio has shared the stories of a school teacher who found relief through dry needling, a dentist who reduced his dependency on pain medication for arthritis of the neck, and a personal trainer who learned to run again after nearly losing her foot in a water skiing accident, among others. Current LPGA star Natalie Gulbis and former NFL lineman Don Davey also discussed their experiences with physical therapy.

    If your suggested patient story is selected, APTA staff will contact you to arrange an interview with you and your patient. The story may also be used for a print version of "Patient Stories," also featured on MoveForwardPT.com.

    Move Forward Radio airs approximately twice a month. Episodes are featured and archived at MoveForwardPT.com, APTA's official consumer information website, and can be streamed online via Blog Talk Radio or downloaded as podcasts via iTunes.
