  • APTA Seeks PTs Involved With Summer Olympics

    The 2012 Summer Olympic Games are fast approaching. During the games, APTA would like to spotlight member physical therapists (PTs) who have helped the nation's elite athletes prepare to compete on the world's biggest stage. If you work with Olympic athletes and/or will be heading to London to serve on an Olympic team’s medical staff, contact Erin Wendel, senior media relations specialist, by e-mail or phone at 703/706-3397 by Monday, May 28, for more details. APTA also intends to use this opportunity to promote the physical therapist's role in helping athletes of all ages and skill levels reach their goals by preventing and treating sports-specific injuries.


    • Hi Erin, We are located in the Seattle area, and see numerous athletes who qualified for the Olympic Trials. Last year I went with one of our athletes, Mike Sayenko, to the IIAF track and Field World Championships in Daeg, South Korea. It was the highlight of my career! This year, in addition to the several athletes who are competing at the Track and Field trials, we also have three players on the US Eagles, the 7's National Team - 7's will be an Olympic Sport in 2016. Feel free to reach out to me at 425/643-9778 to discuss.
