A Word from the Committee Chair

 

Thanks for checking out the Health and Wellness Committee of the MNPTA!  If you are:

  • curious about how health and wellness does or can fit into physical therapy practice
  • passionate about health and wellness
  • wanting to share your success and/or challenges with your experiences on integrating health and wellness into your practice

We would love to have you sit in on one of our meetings and/or join our committee. We typically meet every other month on the 2nd Wednesday from 6-8 pm.

Purpose

The purpose of our committee is to bring together members who are interested in integrating health and wellness concepts and practices into physical therapy practice. We are committed to learning and action through open dialogue, sharing of successes and challenges, the creation and sharing of resources and networking. We aim to empower our members to embody the vision that "physical therapists play an unique role in society in prevention, wellness, fitness, health promotion and management of disease and disability by serving as a dynamic bridge between health and health services delivery for individuals and populations. This means that although physical therapists are experts in rehabilitation and habilitation, they also have the expertise and the opportunity to help individuals and populations improve overall health and prevent the need for avoidable health services." (APTA BOD Position Statement 2015).

Goals

  • Keep current with regard to APTA policies and positions on the integration of health and wellness into physical therapy practice 
  • Take an active role in the APTA  and be leaders in our profession with regard to the integration of health and wellness into physical therapy practice 
  • Provide education to our members with regard to the integration of health and wellness into physical therapy practice
