National Physical Therapy Month
Our favorite month of the year is here, National Physical Therapy Month! A month dedicated to promoting our wonderful therapists and all the great things they do to help their patients overcome their physical challenges.
What is National Physical Therapy Month?
National PT Month was established by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and, “it is a time to celebrate the profession, and all the ways physical therapists, physical therapists assistants, and PT students help improve lives across the country.” Each year the APTA chooses a new theme to focus on for National PT month. This year, the theme focuses on physical activity; and the role PTs, PTAs, and physical therapy students have in keeping people moving.
