Physical and Occupational Therapists are essential in flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. They play a key role in keeping people they can help out of the doctor's offices and ER's. This will not only free up the medical teams to treat those impacted by COVID-19, but also limit the exposure of those seeking the care of the therapists.
