NovaCare Rehabilitation Thanks and Celebrates Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants
Join NovaCare Rehabilitation as we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM)! NPTM is hosted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) each October to recognize how physical therapists and physical therapist assistants help restore and improve motion in people’s lives.
This October, the APTA’s focus is on the risks of opioid use and that physical therapy is a safe, non-opioid alternative for managing pain. The APTA wants you to #ChoosePT… and so do we!
Physical therapy is a unique science and art that utilizes a wide variety of evidence-based treatments to restore function to the body, reduce pain and prevent future injuries. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants treat pain through movement and create individualized treatment plans tailored to a person’s needs and goals. Physical therapists can identify additional health issues and take into consideration pre-existing conditions to help improve a person’s overall health and quality of life.
Physical therapy is effective for numerous conditions, such as low back pain, hip and knee osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and athletic injuries. The benefits of physical therapy include improved mobility, increased independence, decreased pain and prevention of other health problems through movement and exercise.
In comparison, opioids merely mask the sensation of pain. Opioid effectiveness for long-term pain management is oftentimes inconclusive, and side effects may include depression, overdose, addiction and withdrawal symptoms.
“At Select Medical, our Outpatient Division family of brands stands behind its product – our highly trained team of physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. This October, we pause and celebrate these individuals who are dedicated to helping patients live better lives in safe, effective ways. We encourage you to visit our outpatient rehabilitation centers and experience the power of physical therapy, improved strength, flexibility and range of motion and have an exceptional patient experience in a caring, compassionate environment.
Thank you to our team members for improving the quality of life for so many every day.” – Dan Bradley, P.T., President, Select Medical’s Outpatient Division.
