Day in and day out we work closely with our patients and see firsthand the benefits that physical therapy has on each of our patients, on their health and in their lives. We can’t help but share these things with you so that you can experience them too.

Why National Physical Therapy Month Matters To You

A physical therapist is an expert in the movement of the body, helping you live an optimal life, pain free by providing treatment, care, and education. 

There are long-term health benefits to working with a physical therapist. Not to mention the fact that he or she can help you to get out of pain. They can also help you prevent further problems and pain from occurring.

National Physical Therapy Month brings all of these things into the spotlight. Here are four reasons why National Physical Therapy Month matters to you.

Reason #2

Direct access to your physical therapist means no red tape to go through to enlist the help of this healthcare professional who is on your side.
