APTA is pleased to share its new white paper Beyond Opioids: How Physical Therapy Can Transform Pain Management to Improve Health.

This white paper examines the history of the opioid epidemic and the impact it has had on patients, their families, and the nation as a whole. It also details the array of physical therapist interventions that prove to be essential components of helping patients manage their pain without the use of opioids. Within the white paper are six specific public policy recommendations that we urge policymakers to consider.

Please feel free to share it with your colleagues, use as a resource when discussing the role of physical therapy as part of the solution to the current opioid crisis with policymakers and payors.
