Celebrate the profession in October!
Every October we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month to raise awareness with consumers about the many benefits of physical therapy. It's also a great opportunity to appreciate what PTs, PTAs, and students do to transform lives.
NPTM is the perfect time for service events. We have a ChoosePT toolkit full of resources to promote the profession, and you also can use ChoosePT.com to educate consumers about the value of physical therapy.
Stay tuned for more information about NPTM 2023.

APTA and participating components began to celebrate Physical Therapy Week in the early 1980s. The week was initially observed in conjunction with APTA's annual conference in June and was later moved to October. The week evolved and the first NPTM was celebrated October 1992.
