Presentation abstracts were submitted for review and selected for inclusion in the conference by the Research Committee of the Arkansas Physical Therapy Association. For the 2017 state conference, a total of six platform presentations were selected, half of which were provided by this group of local physical therapists.

“I am so proud of my team of physical therapy professionals at South Arkansas Rehab,” said Grubbs, owner of South Arkansas Rehab. “To comprise fully half of all platform presentations selected, alongside other therapists from prestigious institutions like Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Easter Seals of Arkansas, and River Valley Therapy and Sports Medicine is quite an honor, and I am thankful for this opportunity for our therapists to contribute to physical therapy practice in this way. I also appreciate the opportunity to share with physical therapists across Arkansas some of the excellent, innovative, and evidence-based methods of delivering rehabilitative care that our team here provides to our patients.”
