Dr. Grace Walker, the director of Walker Physical Therapy and Pain Center, treats patients for spinal pain, sports injuries, and balance conditions as a physical therapist. Dr. Grace Walker also has expertise as an occupational therapist, helping individuals cope with neck and back pain and as a nutritionist. In order to offer the best care possible, she stays actively involved with the American Physical Therapy Association.
At the beginning of each year, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) holds its Combined Sections Meeting. In 2015, the association held the meeting in Indianapolis. The program consisted of sessions on business management, interventional pain medicine, sports injury treatments, and research. Professionals with backgrounds ranging from acute care to physical therapy gave topical presentations over the course of four days. Continuing education units (CEUs) were awarded for courses completed and for attendance at the Combined Sections Meeting.
The APTA looks to offer the same level of informative sessions and expert speakers at its 2016 meeting in California, which takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center and two supplemental sites at the Anaheim Hilton and the Anaheim Marriot. The forum commences on February 17th and continues through the 20th.
