It’s the age of the blog. Seems like anytime you click on a company’s website you’ll stumble upon their blog. It’s exciting because now more than ever before physical therapists can stay on the cutting edge of innovation, treatment options, advances, etc. But it also can be overwhelming too, being inundated with information and trying to decide which is useful and which is not. Luckily, there are some amazing physical therapy blogs out there to provide up to date information. Here are a few of our favorites.
