October is National Physical Therapy Month
National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) is celebrated each October.
This is an opportunity for facilities to reach out to consumers and educate them about the unique benefits of treatment by a physical therapist:
- Significant improvement in mobility to perform daily activities
- Provision of alternatives to surgery
- Management or elimination of pain without medication and its side effects
This year’s celebration is focused on sports injury prevention across the lifespan.
