The life of a PT is stressful, especially today. My wife learned that firsthand as a new grad who jumped straight into treating patients in the midst of a pandemic. Between treatment, billing, cleaning, and keeping up with things at home, she didn't have time to track the latest research and stay abreast of what's new in the profession. That's why I invented PT CRAB.
It started with me summarizing a few articles for her every week. I'm a physical therapy student at VCU with a master's degree in physiology and a former middle school science teacher. That background has made me an expert on breaking down complex scientific topics, and I used that skill to break down research articles into bite-sized chunks and share them with her over dinner. She told people around her office and they started asking for the notes too and, before I knew it, PT CRAB was born.
Now, every week I do the same thing I did before. Parse the latest research, find clinically relevant information, and bundle it up into memorable and actionable information. My goal is to turn hours of work that you would need to keep up with PT research into a pain-free 10 minute process, once a week. I break down the articles into bite-sized chunks and provide full text links if you want to go deeper. You can check out back issues here, but PT Crab really shines as a newsletter. Just subscribe via the button above to get this in your inbox every week, free. In the future, I'll be rolling out perks for paid members too, so keep an eye out for extra bits from me.
I hope to hear from you soon,
