National Physical Therapy Month is hosted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) each October to recognize how physical therapists and physical therapist assistants can help transform society by restoring and improving motion in people’s lives. National Physical Therapy Month has become synonymous with the month of October for APTA members and their communities. It is a recognized celebration in the National Health Observances Calendar. The American Physical Therapy Association represents more than 88,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy nationwide.
