October is National Physical Therapy Month! That means that for an entire month the industry we love gets some attention from the media and the public. Awesome! This year, the APTA is focusing on sports injury prevention across the life span. For more official information about National Physical Therapy Month, check out this site by the APTA.

For us, it’s all about saying two simple words, “thank you.” Without getting all touchy-feely, we recognize that without all of our members, we wouldn’t be here. You matter to us. We appreciate your business and what you do to care for society. Many of us have personally benefited from the patience and expertise of physical therapists. We’ve been patients and/or many of our family members have benefited from physical therapy. So, thanks for all that you do.

To celebrate, we’ve put together a video campaign of WebPT employees (and even the village chiefs) sharing stories about physical therapy. They will make you laugh; they will make you cry (tissues please!). Make sure to check in each week for a new video.

Today we’re getting started with Jake, our Member Support Manager. Jake is Mr. Dedication. He’s up before the sun for our members (literally, he’s at the office at 5AM).

To kick off our National Physical Therapy Month campaign, watch this message from Jake to you:

For all those of you social media tweeps, use the hash-tag #PTMonth on twitter to share in the social celebration. Also, check in with Move Forward PT for more info on physical therapy. Here’s to a great month!

    Giving Back: How Therapists Across America are Celebrating PT Day of Service 2017

    They say inspiration happens when you break out of your comfort zone. You’ve likely heard a variation of this adage at some point—and perhaps even found truth in it yourself. For Efosa Guobadia, DPT, the founder of PT Haven , inspiration struck as he gazed upon the winding Amazon River in a remote region of Peru. At the time, the Atlanta-based physical therapist was providing volunteer PT services to the local population when he suddenly had a …

    Happy National PT Month 2018!

    ’Tis the season for changing leaves, hot cider, pumpkin-spiced everything, and, of course, physical therapists. That’s because the APTA named October National PT Month —and they couldn’t have picked a better month. (It is, after all, when I was born. But that’s beside the point.) The true reason for celebrating this October is the wonderful work you and your colleagues do to promote health and wellbeing, restore and maintain function, and improve people’s lives—all without the use …

    Happy National PT Month 2017!

    When you think about October, you likely think of kids leaping into piles of crunchy, dried leaves, a freshly carved jack-o-lantern on your front porch, and maybe a spooky meme or two . But at WebPT, we’re thinking about physical therapists. (To be fair, PTs are pretty much always on our minds.) That’s because the APTA has dubbed October  National Physical Therapy Month , and we think it’s the perfect reason to celebrate professionals who are dedicated …

    Cut the Cap: The Case for Eliminating Limits on Rehab Therapy Services

    Let’s take a little trip to the past: the year was 1997. “Titanic” was smashing box office records as moviegoers flocked to theaters for their third or fourth viewing; “Wannabe” by Spice Girls was hitting the airwaves on every Top 40 station; and large-scale healthcare reform was barely stepping into the legislative limelight. To hamper exorbitant healthcare spending, the Clinton administration signed the Balanced Budget Act into law and thus, introduced the Medicare therapy cap . Fast …
