October is National Physical Therapy Month

Physical Therapy

October is the time of year we recognize the profession of physical therapy and celebrate the varied services that physical therapists can provide within our community.

This year, the American Physical Therapy Association (apta.org) has established a “#ChoosePT” campaign to bring increased awareness to the opioid epidemic and the role of PT in safely managing pain.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends physical therapy as a safe and effective alternative to opioids for non-cancer related pain. Following are few tools supported by research that physical therapists may utilize to manage pain (Brence, Joseph. Four Ways PT manages pain; apta.org 2018).
