Join WebPT in the celebration of National Physical Therapy Month. As we look at the wonderful year we have had with our “members” we are excited for the future of PT software in the year to come.

October is National Physical Therapy Month, and according to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), this year’s theme is the importance of daily physical activity to prevent and combat overweight and obesity for people of all ages and abilities
