  • Move Forward Radio Discusses Chronic Pain

    The latest episode of APTA's Move Forward Radio looks at chronic pain through 3 people who were part of a new Discovery Channel documentary on the subject and a physical therapist (PT) who treats chronic pain in his practice. APTA has also issued a press release on the episode.

    The Move Forward Radio episode includes Iraq war veteran Derek McGinnis, as well as Melanie Rosenblatt, MD, and American Chronic Pain Association CEO Penney Cowan. Also featured is John Garzione, PT, DPT, president of the Orthopaedic Section’s Pain Management Special Interest Group, who discusses the role of physical therapy for chronic pain.

    McGinnis, Rosenblatt, and Cowan were featured in Pain Matters, a documentary that features the stories of 6 individuals living with chronic pain, as well as the perspectives of several experts in pain management. The film can be viewed online and will be rerun on December 7 and 14 on the Discovery Channel.
