Here is the follow-up to the Top 5 Worst Physical Therapy Moments on TV/Movies!
As you’ll see, I could only find 3 really positive TV/Movie moments that do not set our profession back. We talk about “brand” all the time….this is at least part of the problem.
#3. Regarding Henry – Bradley
I told you he would be on both lists. Whatever you think of his techniques (they certainly are not evidenced-based), he showed empathy and promoted functional improvement.
#2 -Tourniquet Training – Johnny Owens
Leave it to the Army to do something this cool. It will be fun to watch this technique play out. I don’t know that it will have much indication in most civilian therapy clinics, but it is interesting.
#1. Kobe’s Secret Weapon – Jody Seto
A great story about PTs presence in sports and the ability to keep someone as demanding as Kobe at the top of his game for as long as he could be.
