National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) is hosted by APTA each October to recognize how physical therapists and physical therapist assistants help transform society by restoring and improving motion in people's lives.
Support APTA's #AgeWell Campaign
This October, the focus is on healthy aging and the many ways that physical therapists, as movement experts, can help individuals overcome pain, gain and maintain movement, and preserve their independence.
Our #AgeWell campaign includes media outreach, online advertising, and social media. But we need your help!
We wish to thank the Health Promotion and Wellness special interest group of the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy for their invaluable assistance with this campaign.
Support the Global PT Day of Service
Another way to recognize National Physical Therapy Month and to engage with the community is to support the Global PT Day of Service on or around October 17.
