Working to Defend the Profession of Physical Therapy

Some physical therapists not only meet the needs of their patients but also work for the greater good of the profession.  One of those physical therapists is today’s guest.  Paul Gaspar, PT, DPT, CCS, Owner of Gaspar Doctors of Physical Therapy and President of Independent Physical Therapists of California recently discussed legislative issues with PT Talker.

The Independent Physical Therapists of California is very similar to the CPTA.  The group knows actions speak louder than words. They are very proactive and defend the profession rigorously. Most recent efforts include stopping bill SB381 which prohibits physical therapists from doing joint or spinal manipulation.

As Gaspar predicted, the bill (SB 381) was defeated earlier this week. Learn more about legislative efforts underway in California and their overall impact on physical therapy by listening to the full podcast.
