  • October's Here! Welcome to National Physical Therapy Month

    Happy National Physical Therapy Month!

    During National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM), APTA will provide plenty of ways for you to participate in bringing attention to the profession, including a public education campaign to debunk 7 of the most common myths about physical therapy set to launch during the second week of October.

    In the meantime, here are 3 offerings you can take advantage of right away:

    • Download a NPTM e-mail block (a quick and easy graphic that you can insert below your signature line in e-mails) to let everyone know why October is so special. It's easy to do, and it looks great!
    • Visit the APTA marketplace during NPTM, where members save 20% off everything while supplies last.
    • Let the world know how you're honoring physical therapy—share your posts, photos, and videos on social media by using the ‪#‎PTmonth‬‬ hashtag. ‬

    Visit www.apta.org/NPTM for everything you need to create your own NPTM activities. Resources include the 2014 NPTM logo, fact sheet, event planning guide, sample news release and proclamations, and much more. Other resources can be found at MoveForwardPT.com, APTA’s official consumer information website.
