National Physical Therapy Month 2020

October is National Physical Therapy Month!

This month we celebrate the profession and all the ways physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and PT and PTA students help improve lives across the country.

We’re also raising awareness about the many benefits of physical activity and how PTs and PTAs get people moving.

What is National Physical Therapy Month?

It's an opportunity to raise awareness of the benefits of physical therapy!

The CDC recommends physical therapy as a safer alternative for pain management than opioid use. Physical therapists manage pain through exercise manual therapy, education, and teamwork!

You can celebrate PT Month by participating in many things, such as PT Day of Service on October 10!

Please share your experience with Physical Therapy with us and others!
