Dr. Walt Lowe recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)
Dr. Lowe was presented the Jack C. Hughston Sports Physician Award by the APTA’s Sports Physical Therapy Section at a February 5, 2014 meeting in Las Vegas. Hughston is widely recognized as one of the fathers of sports medicine and died in 2004.
“Dr. Lowe’s selection was based on his many contributions to the sports physical therapy community,” said Barbara Sanders, who chairs the award committee of the APTA’s Sports Physical Therapy Section. “Dr. Lowe was nominated by a physical therapist he works with.”
Dr. Lowe has been treating Houston’s top professional and college athletes for more than a decade and is a team physician for the Houston Texans and Houston Rockets, as well as the University of Houston.
APTA is an individual membership professional organization representing more than 85,000 member physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and students.
