APTA spokesperson Mary Ann Wilmarth, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC, will frame the issue of low back pain, discuss some of the key findings of APTA's Low Back Pain Survey, and explain how to prevent and manage the condition with the help of a physical therapist. She will be joined by 2 guests—APTA member Mike Ryan, PT, ATC, athletic trainer for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and AARP Georgia volunteer Colette Morgan, MD, with Emory University.
