Upcoming APTA webinar should be very informative - check it out!

Updated: May 25

I haven't had the opportunity to learn from Dr. Helminski but Dr. Shubert is a wonderful presenter and makes complex concepts easier to understand and utilize in practice. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you are already an APTA member (and if you're not, now might be a good time to consider joining ;)
