The countdown is on for National Physical Therapy Month: a time to celebrate the physical therapy profession, spotlight the many benefits of physical therapy, and show how physical therapists and physical therapist assistants can help anyone make changes to improve their quality of life.

This October marks the 30th anniversary of recognizing the transformative role PTs and PTAs play in people’s lives. APTA is also in the final year of our physical activity campaign, so the month's theme will again be “Choose to Move.” We’ll be highlighting PTs' unique value as movement experts and the benefits of regular physical activity.

Here’s how you can get involved this year.
