with Doug Levine, Duchenne Certified PT
Ask the PT
The role of the PT and physical therapy programming is quite different in DMD than in other medical conditions. It’s essential to the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of the individual with Duchenne to have knowledgeable PT resources to depend on.
We invite you to join us for Ask the PT with Doug Levine, PT for Duchenne-specific physical therapy information you can rely on. Doug has been specializing in DMD for almost a decade. His full bio is below.
Ask the PT is a weekly event streamed live to the Family, Friends and Duchenne Facebook page at 3:30ish CST on Mondays. We chat about physical therapy concerns for individuals with Duchenne and carriers, too. From stretches to medical devices, medical procedures and home modifications, there’s so much valuable information to share with the community.
We discuss a different topic each week and we also welcome guests to ask their questions on the show. Please reach out to us anytime with a topic you’d like to discuss and visit the Ask the PT Archives.
