Friday, August 19, 2016 Video of Popular Roundtable Discussion on Physical Therapy and Pain Management Now Available To get this year's Rothstein Roundtable started, moderator Anthony Delitto PT, PhD, asked a simple question: is physical therapy a "good choice" for pain management? In many ways, the answer he received from panelist Michael Parkinson, MD, set the tone for the rest of the discussion. Parkinson's reply: "Yes, but." Now available at the Physical Therapy (PTJ) website: a video of the entire Rothstein Roundtable held at the 2016 NEXT Conference and Exposition in June. Delitto and Parkinson are joined by Arlene Greenspan, PT, DrPH, of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Dave Elton of the United Health Group - Optum, as well as 2016 Maley lecturer Steven George, PT, PhD, to discuss the question, “Opioids Versus Physical Therapy: Should Physical Therapy Be the First Choice for Pain Management?” The ensuing conversation, held in front of a capacity audience, was a highlight of the conference. The Rothstein Roundtable is held annually at NEXT in honor of PTJ’s former editor in chief, Jules Rothstein, PT, PhD. PTJ is the scientific journal of APTA. All APTA members receive access to the journal as part of their membership. Don't miss other opportunities to explore the role of physical therapy through the eyes of Steven George, PT, PhD, who is calling for a "revolution" in how physical therapists think about pain. A video of his Maley lecture is available within his recent contribution to the Narrow the Gap blog series.
