According to a recent study conducted by the Physical Activity Council, there are more than 217 million active Americans. Studies also show dramatic increases in marathon race participation (203% increase from 2008 – 2010) and youth, women, and team sports are experiencing a steady increase in participation numbers as well. As activity and participation levels continue to rise across the board, physical therapists with sports injury treatment and prevention expertise will become the most popular therapists in the clinic!
