As part of Physical Therapy Month, we need to raise awareness on how the members of the community can benefit from physical therapy. Our goal should be to educate the public about the profession of Physical Therapy and what Therapists can do for the public to help alleviate pain and achieve health and wellness.
Physical therapy may sound easy to define, but the actual practice of this form of medicine is as complex as the muscles, ligaments, bones, and other body parts it treats. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) defines Physical therapy as: “A plan of care using a variety of treatment techniques that help you move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.”
The healing process doesn’t stop when a person’s external wounds are healed. Many individuals who suffer from injuries or illnesses experience pain and movement limitations even after doctors declare them “healed.” These patients know the benefit of physical therapy, and they are the reason October is National Physical Therapy Month.
