Podcasts are significantly impacting the physical therapy profession. The topics range from issues in health care to fellow physical therapists providing helpful clinical tips and information. There is a podcast for everyone. However, there was a time when the number of podcasts tailored for PTs was few. This shortage is no longer the case as several podcasts are available on various topics. Here are four PT podcasts that are worth checking out.
