Patient Injury Perspectives

I want to share with potential clients or patients some Patient Injury Perspectives and other research from one of my favorite sources for up to date information in the physical therapy world.  I find it very important to stay on top of the latest research, news and treatment options and recommendations for patients. The links below were specifically written in easy to understand language for the general population to assist them in understanding their condition.
