October is National Physical Therapy Month

Oct is PT Month


October is National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) and the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about this wonderful profession and the benefits of physical therapy. 

Physical therapists identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems. They help people maintain or restore as much function as possible. Physical function and movement are very important to:

  • Health, wellness, and fitness
  • Managing pain
  • Earning a living
  • Independence

You can see physical therapists and PTAs almost anywhere, including:

  • Private practices
  • Outpatient clinics
  • Home, work, and school
  • Sports and fitness facilities
  • Nursing homes and rehab facilities
  • Communities

ELC is fortunate to employ six dedicated, talented physical therapists who are committed to our students by promoting movement, participation, and healing as well as encouraging health and wellness.
