CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The American Physical Therapy Association celebrates National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) in October. This year is the 30th anniversary of NPTM, which raises awareness about the many benefits of physical therapy.

“National Physical Therapy Month is an opportunity every year to take time to recognize the outstanding impact physical therapists and physical therapist assistants have on society and health care,” said APTA President Roger Herr, PT, MPA. “It’s also an opportunity to amplify awareness of the profession in our communities.”

APTA – West Virginia (State Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association) is comprised of 600 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students who serve the citizens of West Virginia. “National Physical Therapy Month is an opportunity to shine a light on these dedicated professionals who help West Virginians stay healthy, active, and moving.

NPTM is also an opportunity to host service events in the community, at a place of work, on campus, etc. PTs, PTAs, and students educate the public about the value of physical therapy and how they help get — and keep — people moving.
