Keep Non-invasive!

I am in support of the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy officially listing pelvic floor therapy as a non-invasive procedure… as it has always been, according to the Commonwealth's Assistant AG’s own testimony, and as was pointed out by the Judge in the Henrico County Court system.

On another note, after hearing than reading the complaint filed against my brother I was sick to my stomach. After nearly 15 years in law enforcement and sitting in both criminal and civil cases, I can say I’ve never seen a more disturbing and disgusting example of a hearing. The treatment and judgments brought not only to my brother but exhibited to those testifying on his behalf were obscene. In my opinion every board member should be immediately replaced and investigated as well as the commonwealth attorney that worked this case. 
To those that don’t know this about Scott he was first a patient. He was in a horrible car accident as a teen and was in a coma for several days. He received a plate in his head and had to learn how do all the things again. All from PT’s,KT’s etc. Since than he has dedicated his life to this field. His weekends are usually filled with some type of CE somewhere. He has struggled and saved to be able to open his own practice to be able help as many people as he can. He often works 16 hr days. He literally never stops learning new and innovative ways to help treat his patients. It’s his passion. His calling. He’s one of few people in life that are truly lucky enough where anyone who’s ever met him, knows he’s living his passion of helping people.To see that stripped away from him under the circumstances in which it was done, if not criminal was most definitely evil. 

While we were raised that lawsuits were a waste of time, let bygones be bygones, I sincerely hope he sues everyone involved in that kangaroo court! I think starting with every board member giving up their salaries for two years than x that by 10 would be a good place to start. I pray they also face criminal charges for their behavior. That’s the only criminal thing I’ve witnessed throughout this ordeal.
