“I think it’s so important for people to realize there are a lot of ways to improve their function and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” Laura Malnati PT, DPT, OCS

Free self-help videos have been produced by The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in coordination with The Jackson Clinics physical therapy practice. In April 2011, the APTA traveled to the Worldgate location for The Jackson Clinics and created videos pertaining to injury prevention and wellness. This newly remodeled clinic offers the best in physical therapy equipment as well as access to a 116,000 square-foot Sport and Health fitness club. Each therapist was selected for their expertise in the fields of orthopedics and sports therapy. The videos are part of an online library at where anyone can access free information pertaining to therapeutic tips and exercises.

Featured videos on MoveForwardPT include:

  •     ACL Injury Prevention
  •     Bone Health
  •     Fitness As You Age
  •     Lower Back Pain Tips
  •     Proper Lifting Tips for New Moms
  •     Repetitive Stress Injury
  •     Running and Walking Tips
  •     Strength Training Tips

“I think the MoveForwardPT site is a powerful educational tool and a great way for people to learn about basic exercises that can prevent them from getting injured,” said Matthew Randall PT, DPT.

While most of the efforts of MoveForwardPT are driven towards injury prevention, the site also provides information for those who are suffering from an injury and are looking for treatment. Potential patients can search through a database of symptoms associated with frequently seen problems as well as information pertaining to health insurances and locating a local physical therapist. Individuals can even post questions directly to an APTA registered therapist.

“I think it’s so important for people to realize there are a lot of ways to improve their function and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Laura Malnati PT, DPT, OCS. “We are helping educate the public and spreading the word about the benefits of physical therapy, and I’m excited to get to be a part of it!”

The Jackson Clinics were recognized last year for its excellence in patient care and dedication to the community. They were awarded the National Practice Award in 2010 by the Private Practice Section (PPS) of the APTA. The professional staff has been a model in the industry for their knowledge, commitment to excellence, and dedication to the community. Their enthusiasm in this project is a shining example of a practice built around a mission to “help improve human lives.”
