    We're Celebrating National Physical Therapy Month!

    Join Select Physical Therapy as we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM)! The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) hosts NPTM 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 once again on the risks of opioid use and that physical therapy is a safe alternative for managing pain. The APTA wants you to #ChoosePT… and so do we!

    For the management of some types of pain, prescription opioids can certainly help. However, there is not enough evidence to support prolonged opioid use for chronic pain and side effects may include depression, overdose, addiction and withdrawal symptoms. To achieve pain-free movement for enhanced quality of life and independence, rely on Select Physical Therapy’s team of extensively trained physical therapists.

    Our therapists treat pain through movement and create individualized treatment plans tailored to your needs and goals. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants can identify additional health issues and take into consideration pre-existing conditions to help improve your overall health and quality of life.

    “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. 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
