Each October the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) hosts National Physical Therapy Month not only to bring awareness to the physical therapy profession, but also to recognize the many PTs and PTAs that help transform people’s lives. PTs help people of all ages improve mobility, reduce pain, and live to the fullest and this month is the best time to tell everyone all the benefits travel physical therapy has to offer.


However you choose to celebrate, October is the ideal time to spread  APTA’s new vision, “Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience,” and make it a reality. This year MoveForwardPT, APTA’s official consumer information website, has launched a public education campaign about the top seven myths about physical therapy. To go along with their campaign, they have released a useful infographic to help debunk the misconceptions surrounding physical therapy. Check out the infographic below and make sure to go to APTA’s site to find more ways to celebrate and promote National Physical Therapy Month.
