October 12, 2020
October is National Physical Therapy Month, and while every year we take this time to recognize the significant impact physical therapy can have to the health, wellbeing and independence of individuals, this year has put all of healthcare in a special light.
As we celebrate National PT Month in the midst of our current Public Health Emergency, COVID-19, the impact and benefit of physical therapy is coming more into focus for so many people across the country. Never before have we had so much national attention on the critical healthcare issues that face our patients.
As a physical therapist, I am excited for the future of our profession, PTs and PTAs have a unique opportunity at this time to help shape and direct the future of our industry as we advocate for the care we provide to patients.
Thank you, PTs and PTAs, for your incredible commitment to patient care & doing your part to ensure we keep the promises we make to the people we serve.
Happy National Physical Therapy Month,
President & CEO
