National Physical Therapy Month 2017

Despite extensive efforts to raise awareness of and address the human toll of the opioid epidemic, Americans continue to be prescribed and to abuse opioids at alarming rates. This October, APTA will carry on raising awareness of physical therapy as a safe and effective alternative to opioids for the long-term treatment of chronic pain via its award-winning #ChoosePT campaign.

You can learn about #ChoosePT and find ways to support APTA's efforts locally by visiting the online Campaign Toolkit.

Here's a great way to get started.
