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.

Congratulations are in order for a few of our Shore Ortho Physical Therapy clinical staff members. This past weekend finished a long clinical journey. In year one of their journey, they became Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapists (COMT). In year two, they completed their Residency Training. This past weekend, they completed the last portion of their journey and became Fellowship Trained. They are now Fellows of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (FAAOMPT).
Three of the Shore Orthopaedic Physical Therapy clinicians recently completed the Ola Grimsby Institute’s Residency Program. They each PASSED both the written and practical portion of this program. This is a huge accomplishment and was a two year journey with each of them completing The Ola Grimsby Institute’s Certification on Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) Program prior to completing the Residency Program.
