Resources for PTs, PTAs, and others to increase awareness of the benefits of physical therapy.
Use the following resources to raise awareness about the benefits of physical therapy and physical therapists' role as movement experts.
The American Physical Therapy Association runs national public relations campaigns supported with online ads, targeted print ads, and billboards to promote ChoosePT.com.
If you would like to place a ChoosePT ad, contact APTA's public relations department.
Upon request, APTA will adjust ChoosePT graphics to meet advertising specifications, provided that your advertising promotes ChoosePT.com.
APTA's Patient Action Center is updated throughout the year as legislation is introduced in Congress that affects consumers' access to treatment by a physical therapist.
