This image was shared by the APTA, and it really got me thinking. It inspired me. PT is such a holistic profession, while being very evidence-based at the same time. We have the ability to help treat the causes of the problem, rather than the symptoms. We have the ability to circumvent the use of pharmaceuticals and pursue non-medical forms of pain management and treatment. We have the ability to affect this crisis in an immensely powerful and positive way. To me, that is incredibly exciting.
