October is National Physical Therapy Month

October is National Physical Therapy Month

Published: Thursday, October 6, 2022

Every October we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month to raise awareness with consumers about the many benefits of physical therapy. It's also a great opportunity to appreciate what PTs, PTAs, and students do to transform lives. This year we will continue to emphasize physical therapists' unique value as movement experts as well as the benefits of regular physical activity.

We are celebrating the PT professionals in our department that tirelessly listen to us when we discuss our aches and pains and who silently analyze our walking patterns as we roam around the college. Physical Therapy has been a profession for over 100 years and work with people through the lifespan to restore movement and function.

Thank you to all our physical therapy faculty who contribute to health care and the leadership you contribute to education, research, and service in our college and university.
