63 Twitter Accounts for Physiotherapists to Follow

Twitter, and other social media outlets, are a great way for physiotherapists to keep up-to-date on the latest research and clinically-relevant information. Not only that, social media creates a great platform for clinicians to connect with one another and acts as a great medium for information sharing between clinicians world-wide! However, it can be challenging to find twitter accounts that provide useful, relevant, and reliable information.
To make things a little easier, we did some research and created a list of twitter accounts that physiotherapists should follow!

Exercise

There are a number of Twitter accounts focusing therapeutic exercise. Here are a few that we found most relevant and useful!

Some universities have created their own twitter accounts for rehab-specific tweets. Here are a couple accounts that are very active on the Twitter scene!
