APTA's Media Corps members serve as a resource for journalists who are working on stories that involve physical therapy practice, research, policy, and the critical role that physical therapists play on our nation's health care team.

Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education. Physical therapists treat people of all ages and abilities and empower them to actively take part in their own care. For more information, visit
