As social media and technology has shifted over the years, so has the way we receive our news. This shift in technology has allowed any information we need, to be right at the touch of a screen. Physical therapists are always on the go; however, the demanding profession requires knowledge of new studies, findings, and technology in the medical field. Where does one find the time? Well, now you can just download SoundCloud, grab your aux cord and ride out to one of the top ten Physical Therapy podcasts we’ve listed below.
Most of these podcasts are ran independently; so not only are they informative, but they have the creative freedom to be raw and unfiltered with the topics they tackle. In other words, they aren’t over-hyped snooze fests.
You can get your daily dose of laughter and information all at once. Podcasts even allow you to download episodes to listen to later and because they’re streamed, you don’t have to wait for a specific time or date to tune in; your information on your time.
Without further ado, here are five podcasts you can zone out to on the go, enjoy!
