Even with these endeavors, there remains a substantial subset of patients who are at a disadvantage in experiencing the meaningful impact of physical therapy. They're the individuals in our society who are underinsured and uninsured; the members of our communities who, for a variety of reasons, are deprived of the peace of mind of health care access.
