They talked about pelvic floor physical therapy and how a PT can help those with pelvic floor dysfunction (and much more!). Please give it a listen, give it a review, and share!

Physical Therapy Myth #4: Any Health Care Professional Can Perform Physical Therapy

Posted on

This one gets my blood boiling!

NO!!! Your MD, ND, NP, Chiropractor, personal trainer, or coach are all GREAT at what they do. BUT they do not perform physical therapy. In fact, it is illegal in the state of Washington for any other practitioner to practice or advertise that they practice physical therapy.

Fact: Although 42% of consumers know that physical therapy can only be performed by a licensed physical therapist, 37% still believe other health care professionals can also administer physical therapy. Many physical therapists also pursue board certification in specific areas such as neurology, orthopedics, sports, or women’s health, for example.
