#ChoosePTfirst Downloadable Brochure

IPTA's legislative agenda includes an aggressive effort to help fight the opioid epidemic by: improving access to physical therapy here in Illinois, protecting patient rights to choose treatment and providers, and improving the quality and affordability of healthcare for your patients! 

In order to make a difference, we need our legislators to be aware of our #ChoosePTfirst campaign, encouraging physical therapy as a safe, non-addictive alternative for managing pain over addictive opioids.

The IPTA has developed a convenient, easy-to-read brochure that will capture the attention of our elected officials and help educate them on the 5 things they can do to help fight Illinois' opioid epidemic.

Essentially, we are asking legislative to help us with the following:

  1. Remove restrictions in the Illinois Physical Therapy Act that impede access to a physical therapist.
  2. Provide for fair physical co-pays under insurance.
  3. Allow physical therapists to perform to the full extent of their education and training.
  4. Protect patient choice of their physical therapist.
  5. Protect the truth in advertising by enforcing laws that protect physical therapy terms.

This brochure is FREE for IPTA members to download and can even be customized to include your contact information or name of your clinic/practice.
