October is Physical Therapy Month
Physical Therapists work to restore strength, mobility and promote greater independence, either unassisted or with assistive devices. Licensed physical therapists focus on improvement, coordination, balance, strength and endurance of their patients.
Did you know that physical therapy may be a safe, effective alternative route to treat chronic pain conditions? According to the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) physical therapy is “the safer way to manage pain,” without using potentially harmful and addictive medication.
Physical therapy may require a lot of work, time, and dedication, but with the help of certified physical therapists, people all around the world have seen improvements in their daily lives. Be sure to talk to your physician today to see if physical therapy might be right for you!
