Unfortunately, with the health andfitness industries as competitive as they are, too manyprofessionalsdownplay the benefits of others in order tocreate a superficial and unnecessary "who is more knowledgeable than who" hierarchy . These all too common marketing tacticsdo nothing but hinder a patient/client's ability to experience the highest quality of care. The term MOVEMENT PROFESSIONAL is meant to erase lines drawn in the sand between various professionals working with a common goal of assisting others in reaching their human movement potential. This is not to disregard differences in the educational processes of different professions, but simply to point out that a collaborative effort is the most effective approach to improving physical function/performance.
