Physician, physical therapists use movement screen to aid in dance injury prevention
Greenville Online via Physical Therapy Products
Dr. Jocelyn Szeto, along with a team of physical therapists, is working with dancers at the Carolina Ballet Theater in Greenville, South Carolina, to conduct research on dancer and performer health. The research team works with the dancers as they move through seven stations in the main studio of the theater. Physical therapists measure the dancers' core strength, hip flexibility and overall stability. Szeto explains, "It's not just doing the movement but how they're doing it, and if they're doing it the correct way."

New details on functional limitation reporting issues
WebPT
In February, WebPT posted a blog post about a glitch in Medicare's processing system that was causing claim denials in certain functional limitation reporting cases — specifically, in cases involving complex discharge or treatment scenarios. It is imperative to remember that Medicare can only accept data for one functional limitation per patient regardless of how many concurrent cases exist for that patient. Since writing the original post, WebPT has learned additional information regarding FLR problems. Here's how the wonky FLR plot has thickened.

3 tips for self-managing Patello-Femoral Pain Syndrome
PutMeBackTogether.com
Patello-Femoral Syndrome is a relatively common condition which causes pain at the front of the knee. It is associated with positions of the knee which result in increased or misdirected mechanical forces between the kneecap and the thigh bone(Piva et al., 2009). Despite being a common and relatively easy to diagnose injury, there is much to learn about the exact pathology involved in the presentation of this condition.

Why marketing and sales go hand-in-hand
By Charlotte Bohnett
The private practice rehab industry loves to talk marketing. We all scour the Internet for ways to improve referral marketing, online marketing and print marketing. But clinic directors, managers and therapists alike seem to adamantly avoid or abhorrently oppose anything related to sales. I'm here to say we absolutely shouldn't. More importantly, we can't. And for your PT, OT or SLP business — or any business — to be a success, marketing and sales need to take a page from Forrest Gump and Jenny: Always be together like peas and carrots.

Study: Physical therapy may not improve hip arthritis
HealthDay News via U.S. News & World Report
Physical therapy for people with arthritis of the hip doesn't help relieve pain or improve function more than receiving a sham treatment, a new study by Australian researchers suggests. "Receiving physical therapy did not add any greater benefit over simply seeing a caring physical therapist and having positive expectations about treatment," said lead author Kim Bennell, a research physiotherapist at the University of Melbourne. However, other experts contend that physical therapy will benefit some patients, particularly those who are overweight and inactive.
