The US health care system must meet the "triple aim" of improving population health, improving patients experience of care, and lowering costs. APTA is committed to public policy that promotes evidence-based, patient-centered care and improves individual and population health. APTA believes that physical therapists and physical therapist assistants-by nature of the individualized, cost-effective, evidence-based services they provide to keep people healthy, fit, and mobile-are central to this important effort.. APTA establishes its public policy priorities every 2 years in conjunction with each new session of the US Congress. Priorities are determined through member input and then review by APTAs Public Policy and Advocacy Committee (PPAC), followed by review and approval by APTAs Board of Directors..

According to the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA) a study from the Annals of Internal Medicine, published just a week before Wrights injury (April, 2015), supports his approach in finding physical therapy (PT) to be just as effective as decompression surgery for relieving symptoms and improving function in patients having lumbar spinal stenosis.(1) Lumbar spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the lower spine resulting in one or more compressed nerves resulting in pain quite often and nerve related abnormal sensations or even weakness for the muscles the nerve supplies. In this study the individuals were randomly assigned into either a group doing physical therapy or to one receiving surgical decompression surgery. Physical function outcomes were used to measure progress for all 169 study participants at 10 weeks, then 6, 12, and 24 months. No significant differences in the groups physical function outcomes were found between those that had decompression surgery and those that relied ...

ABOUT OCS CERTIFICATION. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), a national professional organization representing more than 80,000 members throughout the United States, established the specialist certification program in 1978. Specialization is the process by which a physical therapist builds on a broad base of professional education and practice to develop a greater depth of knowledge and skills related to a particular area of practice. Clinical specialization in physical therapy responds to a specific area of patient need and requires knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of the physical therapist at entry to the profession and unique to the specialized area of practice.. The specialist certification program was established to provide formal recognition for physical therapists with advanced clinical knowledge, experience and skills in a special area of practice and to assist consumers and the health care community in identifying these physical therapists.. Dr. Andersons ...
In reaching out to women of all ages, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has used social media in major ways to help get the message out. In August we featured a segment on pregnancy and running on our Internet-based radio program, "Move Forward Radio."

Their study, which was funded by the American Physical Therapy Associations (APTA) Sports Sections Legacy Fund, will compare lab based and clinical measures of core stability in athletes with and without shoulder injuries.. The research team has defined an "athlete" as someone who regularly ...
In this chapter, pharmacologic agents are grouped according to the preferred practice patterns as listed originally in Chapter 6 of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd edition (revised).1 For each preferred practice pattern, medications that specifically address cardiovascular or pulmonary problems will be discussed as they relate to that practice pattern. It is, of course, not possible to describe all medications that might be related to each pattern. For example, medications used to control infection, treat cancer, and so forth, may help improve the patients overall health, thereby helping the patient to participate in aerobic conditioning, respiratory exercises, and other activities that will ultimately lead to better cardiovascular and pulmonary function. This chapter, however, will focus only on the medications that directly affect the heart, circulation, or lungs and describe how these medications relate to the physical therapy interventions described in the preferred practice ...
What is a physical therapist?Physical therapists are good people to know. Theyre educated in understanding the interaction of all your body parts. Their hands-on approach begins with examination, diagnosis, and then treatment of the immediate problem. Then they teach you how to take care of yourself by showing you how to do exercises and how to use and move your body properly to gain strength and mobility while preventing injury and wear and tear to your body. Youll find them advising on proper work smart posture and body mechanics in the workplace, treating injuries, consulting on fitness/wellness and self care of the working, aging body. Youll also find them treating patients in the hospital, clinic or home settings. Today physical therapists provide help for every part of the body and to everyone from infants to the elderly, serving more than one million people each day.Where do physical therapists practice?- Outpatient clinics or private practice n 41.5 percent- Outpatient hospitals ...

Joint mobilization is a manual therapy intervention, a type of straight-lined, passive movement of a skeletal joint that addresses arthrokinematic joint motion (joint gliding) rather than osteokinematic joint motion. It is usually aimed at a target synovial joint with the aim of achieving a therapeutic effect. These techniques are used by a variety of health care professionals with specific training in manual therapy assessment and treatment techniques. IFOMPT defines joint mobilization as "a manual therapy technique comprising a continuum of skilled passive movements that are applied at varying speeds and amplitudes to joints, muscles or nerves with the intent to restore optimal motion, function, and/or to reduce pain."[1] The APTA Guide to Physical Therapist Practice defines mobilization/manipulation as "a manual therapy technique comprised of a continuum of skilled passive movements that are applied at varying speeds and amplitudes, including a small amplitude/ high velocity therapeutic ...
The human body produces chemicals under certain conditions that help control pain and other physiologic processes. Two primary examples involve the production of the endogenous opioids and the endogenous cannabinoids. Throughout history, exogenous natural (plant-based), semisynthetic, and synthetic chemicals have been administered to mimic the effects of the endogenous opioid and endocannabinoid systems. The purpose of this presentation is to address how the opioid and endocannabinoid systems work within the body, and how opioid and cannabinoid drugs can affect their respective systems. Attention will be focused on how these medications affect pain pathways, and how they also influence areas of the brain associated with reward, pleasure, and the potential for addiction. This session will encourage discussion about how these drugs can impact physical therapist practice, and how clinicians can educate and inform their patients and clients about the positive and negative effects of these drugs.<

How should I apply this information?". This study was a case series in which 2 groups of children with cerebral palsy who were nonabmulatory were followed for 1 year to determine the effect of standing with maximal hip abduction and extension from ½ to 1½ hours per day. One group of 3 children who underwent bilateral adductor-iliopsoas-tenotomies was matched with 20 control subjects. Another group of 8 children, the prevention group, received the standing intervention and did not require surgery. This second group was matched with 63 control subjects. Pre- and postintervention radiographs were used to determine migration percentage (MP) and range of motion. * In the surgery group, those using the stander demonstrated the largest decrease of MP.. * In the prevention group those receiving intervention for 1 hour per day demonstrated a significant improvement in MP.. * In the prevention group, those who stood for shorter periods of time (½ hour per day) maintained the MP or had MP increases less ...

The ability to control chemical reactions to efficiently and selectively produce the desired products has vastly improved over the past decades, with increasingly sophisticated techniques now available to dictate the outcome of these reactions. While much progress has been made, much more is needed to realize a perfect reactor, which would allow for full control of chemical transformations at the molecular level. In the October AIChE Journal Perspective article, "Practical Challenges in Energy-Based Control of Molecular Transformations in Chemical Reactors," Andrzej Stankiewicz, Izabela Szydłowska Franssen, Daniel Irimia, and Georgios Stefanidis of Delft Univ. of Technology expand on this topic of molecular control in chemical reactors ...
This Perspective article discusses the problem that as antiscience movements grow and gain ascendancy, it may increasingly fall to the scientists to mount a defense or lead a response; however, many universities discourage scientists from speaking out, while fewer provide public engagement training at predoctoral and postdoctoral levels.

You can visit the APTAs Action Center.. CHIP Funding:. Some states will run ...
