HAPPY NATIONAL PHYSICAL THERAPY MONTH!

National Physical Therapy MonthEach October, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) celebrates National Physical Therapy Month. First, it is a time to promote the many benefits of physical therapy in patients’ lives, from helping elderly patients live independently, to getting young athletes safely back into the game, to enabling a parent to return to a job after a workplace injury. It is also a time to thank the many professionals who do the demanding but rewarding work of physical therapy. Physical therapists are hands-on practitioners who learn a great deal about their patients’ lives in the process of providing treatment, and they care about each individual patient as a result. If a physical therapist has helped you in the past, consider taking time to thank them this month! Or, consider making a patient testimonial about how ACPT has improved your life — our very best referrals come from satisfied patients like you.

As part of the celebration, APTA is sharing resources including Seven Myths about Physical Therapy and the Benefits of Physical Therapy. Please share these resources with friends or family members who aren’t sure what physical therapy could do for them — they’ll thank you, and ACPT thanks you!
