Welcome to PT Think Tank!

Founded by Eric Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT.

Back in December of 2006 when this blog was born, it was called NPA Think Tank. It’s not anymore. It’s way cooler.

PT Think Tank is a blog dedicated to critical observations about health, science, and the world of physical therapy. Moreover, it’s a sounding board and outlet for the exploration of technology and healthcare. The integration of web and mobile tools into healthcare is revolutionary, and the concept of empowered patients is significant. With a pulse on the profession, we strive to…well…make you think! We hope you enjoy reading!

The NPA Think Tank Blog History

NPA Think Tank Old Design

NPA Think Tank, founded by Eric Robertson in 2006 was a blog dedicated to critical observations of health, science, and the profession of physical therapy. Eric originally began this blog as a curious experiment to learn about blogging, but it quickly developed into a passion. NPA Think Tank gained an audience by exploring the world around us from the eye of physical therapists. Eric’s interest in evidence-based practice, leveraging technology in health care, and good all around fun is reflected in these pages.
