Encourage Americans to Remain Physically Active During Social Distancing and Isolation
APTA is seeking licensed physical therapists willing to record video of themselves leading an exercise or series of exercises specific to their area of practice or clinical expertise that can be safely and easily done at home. Approved videos will be posted to ChoosePT.com, APTA’s official consumer information website, and shared on our social media platforms geared toward consumers.
Members can choose to create either a full 20-minute video featuring a series of exercises, or several shorter videos featuring one exercise (with possible modifications for various fitness levels).
For example, check out this floor/mat exercise video recently produced by APTA member Megan Brown, PT, DPT, for ChoosePT.com.
The goal is to encourage Americans to keep moving while they are at home following the CDC’s guidelines to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. This is also an opportunity to help APTA raise awareness about physical therapists’ roles as health care movement experts and increase traffic to ChoosePT.com, where visitors can learn about the value of physical therapy and find a physical therapist in their area. Last year, ChoosePT.com attracted nearly 4 million unique visitors.
This opportunity is open to licensed physical therapists.
