courage to become your true self
Courage is not something we stumble upon as we round the corner of the cubicle at the office, but a practical internal resource—a portfolio of personal assets that can bolster your position in defining moments.

PT myths

During the month of October we want to make people aware of what physical therapy is and how physical therapists help improve an individual’s mobility, function, and decrease pain.

This year the American Physical Therapy Association shares a great list of 7 myths about physical therapy. As a...
