The month of October is Physical Therapy Month. Physical Therapy is a profession that seeks to return patients to the highest possible degree of personal independence.
The physical therapist (PT) works with patients with disabilities of the muscular, skeletal, neurological, circulatory and respiratory systems. They also are involved in prevention programs to assist people of all ages in maintaining health and physical fitness.
