What is Oncology Physical Therapy?
No matter what area of the body ails you – neck, shoulder, back, knee – physical therapists have an established history of helping individuals improve their quality of life. A physical therapist can help you learn to move without pain, while feeling renewed and ready to move on. They can even help you prevent an injury altogether.
Oncology Patient Fact Sheets
The Academy of Oncologic Physical Therapy is beginning a project to create a series of Oncology PT Fact sheets. Each fact sheet will deal with a different aspect of physical therapy treatment in cancer and HIV patients.
The Academy of Oncologic PT, APTA has several course offerings looking for partners to host. The host facility will be chosen based on the guarantee that they can draw a minimum of 20 registrants.
The Academy's General Listerv is a very productive messaging system for answering your practice questions. In addition, we maintain specialized listservs for our special interest groups.
Any PT/PTA living in a country other than the US who is not eligible for membership in APTA can take advantage of our membership benefits by becoming a Partner of the Academy of Oncologic Physical Therapy.
