Month of October: Health Observance Topic
National Physical Therapy Month
October Observance 2016
October is not only the month of ghouls and goblins, it is also known as National Physical Therapy Month. National Physical Therapy Month is hosted by the American Physical Therapy Association each October to recognize how physical therapists and physical therapist assistants help transform society by restoring and improving motion in people's lives (apta.org). According to Hopkins Medicine, one-third of all injuries incurred in childhood are sports related injuries. For example: In 2009, more than 170,000 children ages 5 to14 were treated in hospital emergency rooms for basketball-related injuries (hopkinsmedicine.org). In most injuries, physical therapy is essential in the healing process whether it is post-surgery or to prevent/prolong surgeries.
