If you ask 10 people to explain what a physiotherapist does, chances are you will get 10 different answers. What if we brand ourselves as "Exercise Specialists"!?

For example, instead of telling patients to simply lose weight, tell them to skip the escalator, park far away, or open all doors without an automatic button.

The above examples, as well as dozens of others, are discussed and explained by Bahram Jam, founder of the Advanced Physical Therapy Education Institute (APTEI), in this online physiotherapy course.

As physiotherapists, we must promote ourselves as "Exercise Specialists".
