Subject: New APTA white paper "Beyond Opioids: How Physical Therapy Can Transform Pain Management to Improve Health"

Dear Component Leaders,

We are pleased to share with you a copy of APTA’s new white paper Beyond Opioids: How Physical Therapy Can Transform Pain Management to Improve Health.

This white paper examines the history of the opioid epidemic and the impact it has had on patients, their families, and the nation as a whole. It also details the array of physical therapist interventions that prove to be essential components of helping patients manage their pain without the use of opioids.  Within the white paper are 6 specific public policy recommendations that we urge policymakers to consider.

Please feel free to share it with your component members, non-members, colleagues, etc.  In addition please utilize it as a resource when discussing the role of physical therapy as part of the solution to the current opioid crisis with policymakers and payors. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Best,

Justin Elliott

Vice President, Government Affairs

APTA
