October is National Physical Therapy Month!

nationalpt-monthOctober is not just the month of Halloween, it is also National Physical Therapy Month!
Did you know that physical therapy can treat back, knee and joint pain? Did you know that conditions like obesity, osteoporosis and arthritis can also be treated by a licensed physical therapist? In fact, the treatment spectrum ranges from sports related injuries and neurological conditions like a stroke to skeletal injuries like sprains, strains, and fractures.

A physical therapist is a licensed professional and an expert in the management of the musculoskeletal system. In fact, in most cases, you can see a physical therapist without a referral.

As 2015 comes to a close, this is an ideal time to renew your commitment to your health and well-being. You probably have met your insurance deductible (and even your maximum out of pocket) but you cannot carry this over to the next calendar year. Waiting until next year means that not only will you lose any unused benefits for this year, but also that you’ll have to first satisfy a new year’s deductible before any benefits will be paid.

Physical therapy is a viable alternative to surgery and medicine. In fact, it can help improve everyone’s fitness and energy levels. Physical therapy can certainly help with pain relief, restoration of function and improvement in strength and mobility, but there is a lot more that your therapist can do for you.

Call us today to set up your evaluation so we can get you on the right track for 2016!
