Competence and Persistence Prevails Above All Else
The Daily Times
By Joe Black, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC: I recently visited a physical therapy practice in Atlanta for the purpose of helping them be more successful. It is a young practice that is struggling to make ends meet, which isn't really that unusual. I look back to 1981 when I started my own practice.

Team Effort Saves Life of Basketball Ref
Statesman Journal
