Physical therapist Sarah Wenger, PT, DPT, has teamed with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and YourUpdate TV to produce a video discussing the dangers of opioid abuse and the use of safer alternatives, such as physical therapy, to help manage pain.

The video discussion is part of APTA’s #ChoosePT campaign, launched to raise awareness about the dangers of prescription opioids and encourage the use of physical therapy instead to safely manage chronic pain.

To view the video, visit YouTube.

Wenger is an associate clinical professor at Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions, as well as a board-certified clinical specialist in orthopaedic physical therapy.
