POCUS: A Valuable New Tool for Physical Therapy



Greg Fritz was in a compulsory post pregnancy ultrasound when he saw his son’s forming bones inutero. He asked himself “Why don’t we use this to look at bones and muscles on my patients?” This started his passion/obsession for POCUS MSK. Greg was one of 3 Physical Therapists in the nation to pass the pioneer RMSK certification in 2012. Greg lectures at the university of Washington and is on the training faculty for interventional POC orthobiologics.
