PTs and Patient Discuss Pain Management with Congressman Casten

Submitted by: Julie Schwertfeger, PT, DPT, MBA, CBIST

Congressman Casten (IL6-D) met on May 25th at Body Gears Physical Therapy in Oakbrook with PTs & a pain patient in the sixth district to talk about PT treatment techniques for managing pain. 

Casten was asked to support or co-sponsor H.R. 2802, which decreases patient access barriers to PT that can improve pain management and decrease opioid dependence. H.R. 2802 would add PTs to the list of service providers who are eligible for the National Health Service Corps loan forgiveness program, which reduces student loan debt in return for years of service practicing in an underserved area.
