#opt4pt toolkit introduction

Introduction

OPT4PT is a public awareness campaign supported by the Utah Physical Therapy Association. It’s goal is to promote physical therapy as a safe alternative to opioids for the treatment of pain, show that PT can be just effective and cheaper than surgery for many musculoskeletal conditions, increase awareness of direct access, and educate patients that PT’s are movement experts trained to improve daily function.

The OPT4PT website and this toolkit will provide content, resources, and links that allow you to promote yourself as a physical therapist to the community.
