The Physical Therapy Channel

I came across the Physical Therapy Channel a few months ago, just as they launched the beta version of the site (it’s still in beta) and thought it might make a useful resource.  I haven’t spent much time using it since then, but judging from the increased number of videos available, it seems to be gaining users.

The sites creators, also physiotherapists, are pushing for it to become an online community for physiotherapists, students, educators and product vendors (it’s this last one that makes me sceptical).  The site features “…demonstrations of treatment techniques, rehabilitation products, software demonstrations, rehabilitation facility tours, interviews with physical therapists and other healthcare related disciplines, online in-services, operating room surgeries, and a host of other unique content from the physical therapy industry.

Users can subscribe, listen, view, upload and share physical therapy videos and podcasts on the site.

Here’s the direct link to the site:
