Submit a Physical Therapy Patient Story


Attention DPTA Members! and the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) are seeking current or former physical therapy patients and clients who are willing to share their stories about how physical therapy transformed their lives.

If you know of an inspirational story, e-mail us at with:

  • Basic details of the patient/client’s condition and age during treatment
  • A brief description of the patient/client’s story (their condition before physical therapy and afterward) and treatment experience
  • The name and location (city and state) of the clinic where the client/patient received treatment

Please do not include in the e-mail the patient/client’s name or any other identifiable information that would violate HIPAA’s patient privacy protections if you are a physical therapist or other health care professional submitting a story on behalf of a patient/client.

Those selected to participate will be contacted within 2 weeks of their submission. Selected stories may be shared in several ways, including but not limited to webpages at, social media graphics, podcasts, and/or videos.

Contact with any questions or concerns.
