Some of you may remember reading this post on Doctors of Physical Therapy Website about a year ago, but we believe its message is consistent. One of the biggest barriers to changing our profession is a lack of patient education and understanding of who we are and what we do.
This post presents a simple, consistent message: " I am (a) ___________."
-Musculoskeletal Expert, Movement Analysis Specialist, Direct Access, Cost Effective, etc.
We must advocate for our profession from the Patient-Upward and not strictly Top-Down. We cannot expect to persuade the AMA or Insurance Companies to give us rights if we have little support from our consumer.
