PT in Motion, a national magazine dealing with physical therapy, is seeking true stories of mystery illnesses or problems that were solved, in whole or part, by a physical therapist.

Maybe the physical therapist actually solved the problem. Or maybe he/she recognized that it required some other medical professional and referred you to that specialist.

We're especially looking for instances where you (or the person with the illness/problem) had been to multiple other health care professionals who either couldn't diagnose or misdiagnosed the problem.

For stories we're interested in, we'll interview both the patient and the physical therapist.

Your story will be read by over 75,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students studying to become PTs and PTAs.

If you can help, please contact:
