Help Identify Physical Therapy’s ‘Top 5’ Unnecessary Procedures

APTA is asking its members to choose wisely in order to help consumers do the same.

This week, all APTA members were invited by e-mail to participate in a survey that will help the association identify the “top 5 things physical therapists (PTs) and patients should question,” for consideration to be included in the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation’s “Choosing Wisely” campaign. This high-profile effort aims to educate consumers on health care procedures that tend to be done frequently, yet whose usefulness is called into question by evidence.

APTA is among the first 3 non-physician provider organization to be invited to join the project, which is being promoted by Consumer Reports and has already garnered media attention.
