Dr. Oz Show was full of ....

In 2013 there was a well spoken PT on an episode of the Dr. Oz Show called “Cutting Edge Solutions for Back Pain”. On national television, the PT confidently described to Dr. Oz the benefits of ultrasound, Tiger Balm patches and a massage ball as the main treatment of low back pain! …are you kidding me? Sadly, the PT never mentioned exercise for LBP which is the ONLY thing our profession should be promoting.


Members of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) were so outraged that letters went to the show stating the Dr. Oz had done his viewers a great disservice by promoting passive coping strategies for LBP. Studies have clearly demonstrated that passive coping strategies pave the pathway to chronicity.
