Thursday, September 25, 2014 Get Ready for National Physical Therapy Month! With National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) coming in October, now's a perfect time to begin making plans to celebrate the profession and increase understanding of how physical therapy can transform society. Visit the APTA NPTM webpage for everything you need to create your own NPTM activities. Resources include the 2014 NPTM logo, fact sheet, event planning guide, sample news releases and proclamations, and much more. Even more resources can be found at MoveForwardPT.com, APTA’s official consumer information website. NPTM is a great opportunity to give communities a "hands on" experience of physical therapy by demonstrating what physical therapists and physical therapist assistants really do, and how the profession keeps people fit, active, healthy, and mobile. This year's APTA focus: a public education campaign to debunk 7 of the most common myths about physical therapy, set to launch during the second week of October. Stay tuned to learn how you can participate!
