National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) is hosted by APTA each October to recognize how physical therapists and physical therapist assistants help transform society by restoring and improving motion in people’s lives.
During National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM), APTA will provide plenty of ways to participate in bringing attention to the profession, including a public education campaign to debunk 7 of the most common myths about physical therapy set to launch during the second week of October. In the meantime, you may take advantage of the following offerings:
- Download a NPTM e-mail block (a quick and easy graphic that you can insert below your signature line in e-mails) to let everyone know why October is so special.
- Visit the APTA marketplace during NPTM, where members save 20% off everything. Go to and place your order while supplies last.
- Let the world know how you’re honoring physical therapy—share your posts, photos, and videos on social media by using the #PTmonth hashtag.
- Visit APTA’s NPTM webpage for everything you need to create NPTM activities.
