Read this in the ADVANCE, which caught my attention.

"Two New York orthopedic surgeons have developed a DVD series to help individuals do physical theraoy on their own.
    The Knee, Home Rehabilitation Series DVD targets people who are too busy to attend regular treatment sessions. It was created by James Capozzi, PT and Mark Klion, a clinical instructor in the department of orthopedics at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
    On the DVDm Klion instructs viewers, who rank themselves beginners, intermediate or advanced on rehab techniques. Klion and Cappozi plan to make more DVDs on the back and the shoulder. For more information, visit"

Do them on their own? Is this the right thing for "busy" individuals?

If those surgeons don't understand the true value of a Physical Therapist they aren't good surgeons.

Are these surgeons really known physical therapy?
Or all patients could do physical therapist on their own without physical therapist?
I am curiosity.


Anything should be suspecious in your mind.

I believe they consulted with a physical therapist. It sound like they can give recommend this DVD to their patients without going to a physical therapist first.

The concept of 'selling' PT on a DVD certainly is not appealing to our profession. However, using state of the art media to get someone to exercise may have some merits. Of course, there will have to be much care regarding liability - sending a patient with a recent ACL repair home with a DVD of exercises is asking for trouble.

But is it reasonable to have a general home exercise program on DVD? I know there are many exercise DVDs available, but are there any that are endorsed or made by physical therapist? If so, for what part of the population? Young athletes, seniors, middle age, wheelchair, amputee, stroke, other neuro, etc?

Is the DVD exercise video simply a way to pad the bottom line for the PT business or can we capture some of the exercise market with our version of exercises that could promote improved health?

Don't know if there are those out there put out by PTs. However, there are books that do the same thing that are put out by MDs.

Are they then practicing PT without a license? or because they are MDs they automatically know more than we do about everything and are entitled?

I think I will start titrating my patient's blood pressure meds, you know,to get it just right.

Very interesting thread! There is no question that there is no replacement for hands on PT. However, I do have a patient population that can't afford or live too far from a PT clinic. I've been wondering about using some sort of online media or DVD that can give some basic instructions. Any out there? Recommendations?
