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.
NPTM resources for PTs and PTAs include:
- A National Physical Therapy Month website that helps members connect with more information, participate in social media efforts, develop their own community events to celebrate NPTM, and get the word out to local press and government through sample and template news alerts and proclamations
- An infographic that recaps the results of the APTA survey
- For consumers, “9 Physical Therapist Tips to Help You #AgeWell“
- A MoveForwardPT.com list of “healthy tips for each decade” from 2 tips for the 20s through 6 tips for the 60s and beyond
Other resources will be rolled out during NPTM, including podcasts that take a deeper dive into healthy aging.
