Dated: October 8 2018

Physical Therapy Awareness Month is in October, and we look forward to recognizing the incredible work of our amazing Allied Healthcare Professionals.

The leaves are turning, it’s officially Autumn and there’s something to Celebrate!

The American Physical Therapy Association’s President Sharon Dunn, PT, Ph.D. says, “National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) is an annual opportunity to recognize the physical therapy profession’s efforts to transform society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.”

"This "transformative power" is the crux of the Physcial Therapy Profession."

Anyone who has worked with a Physical Therapist on their journey to health knows “transformative” is the perfect word to describe the abilities of these medical professionals.

Did you know that the very first National Physical Therapy Week was Celebrated in June 1981? In the 80’s it was only a week, but now we Celebrate an entire month.

Because June conflicted with the APTA annual national conference, the celebration was moved to October.

Ever since the celebration moved to October, the APTA has chosen a focal health theme that pertains to physical therapy for each annual celebration.

Examples of past themes include:

  • Obesity

  • Lower back pain

  • Posture

  • Balance

Every year, we look forward to celebrating the important, life-changing work performed by Physical Therapists!
