Physical therapy expert witnesses found here may testify regarding the use of therapeutic exercise, manipulations, massage therapy, body therapy, and bodywork. In Special Considerations in Cases of Trauma, The Ethics of Touch, a book on ethics, sexual trauma, and professional boundaries, Dr. Ben E. Benjamin writes:
On average, one of every five clients a practitioner sees has a history of trauma or abuse. Whether or not you are aware of it, in a large percentage of your sessions, the client in your treatment room may be a survivor. Even the client might not know. To avoid ethical complications, every practitioner who uses touch needs basic knowledge about trauma and abuse survivors and a clear protocol for working with these particular clients.
