Moving Forward: ANPT Position Paper

In the January 2021 issue of the Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy, the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy Board of Directors published a position paper, Moving Forward, on  Evidence-Based vs. Traditional Treatments. 

This document supports the ANPT position to emphasize the use of the best available evidence and research in the treatment of adults with acute-onset movement disorders following neurological injury. After decades of debate over the different treatment methods the ANPT Board of Directors felt it was time to provide a statement as to ANPT's position for the membership. 

To assist in the dissemination of resources and tools associated with the position paper, the Move Forward Task Force was appointed in April of 2021.  Development of content is currently underway.
