October of each year is National Physical Therapy Month – an annual opportunity to recognize the Physical Therapy profession’s efforts to “transform society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.” (APTA President Sharon Dunn). It’s a time that we as PT’s reflect on the ways that we are improving the health, mobility, and quality of life of each of our patients. Our team put our own thoughts down on what being a PT – and National Physical Therapy Month – means to us!
“The only thing I like better than meeting a new patient is graduating a current one.” – Phil Chamberlain, Owner, PT, MSPT, Cert DN
“Being a physical therapist means easing the burden of pain and suffering in the lives of others.” – Kimberly MacVane, PT, DPT, Cert DN
“Being a physical therapist means striving to be the best resource, guide, and partner to a patient as we journey towards their goals together.” – Austin Stonebraker, PT, DPT, Cert DN, Cert VRS
“To me, being a physical therapist means I get to help keep my community healthy and happy.” – Joshua Gelfand, PT, DPT, Cert VRS
