NATIONAL PHYSICAL THERAPY MONTH TAKES PLACE IN OCTOBER EACH YEAR TO RAISE AWARENESS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY AS A HEALTHY AND EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO OPIOIDS.
The presence of pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek help from a healthcare professional. National research shows that chronic pain, defined as pain lasting longer than 3 months, affects roughly 100 million American citizens.
