Listeners to APTA's Move Forward Radio can get a firsthand account of how Team USA prepares to go for gold on the slopes of Sochi, Russia, at the Olympic Winter Games—all from a physical therapist's perspective.
In an episode that aired last week, Amber Donaldson, PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS, describes the training and treatment regimens for Olympic and Paralympic athletes at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, before providing injury prevention tips for recreational skiers and snowboarders. In conjunction with the segment, MoveForwardPT.com published tips for “Preventing Skiing-Related Injuries,” and APTA issued a press release about these resources.
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 a podcast via iTunes. Ideas for future episodes and other feedback can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
APTA members are encouraged to alert their patients to the radio series and other MoveForwardPT.com resources to help educate the public about the benefits of treatment by a physical therapist.
