Celebrate National Physical Therapy Month

October is National Physical Therapy Month and the staff at Creative Rehab is celebrating "Change". How has physical therapy changed your life?

Each October, physical therapists across America come together to celebrate National Physical Therapy Month.  This month allows physical therapists the opportunity to highlight their importance as a member of an individual’s medical team.  Physical therapists are experts in how the body moves and their skills can help patients stay fit, prevent injury, avoid surgery, and live a better life. 

The physical therapists at Creative Rehab are celebrating National Physical Therapy Month with a theme of “Change”.  Whether we’re talking about how to move better or what happens to our bodies over time, the topic of change is a common one at Creative Rehab. 

Throughout October we’ll be celebrating “Change” in various ways.  All month long, we’re asking our patients to tell us how physical therapy has changed their lives.  Even if you’ve never been a patient at Creative Rehab, we would love for you to share your story.  Simply email creativerehabpt@gmail.com with a description of how physical therapy has changed your life.  You can also stop by our clinics in Libertyville and Gurnee or send us a note on our Facebook page.  We’ll be collecting everyone’s responses and posting them at our clinics so others can find inspiration in your achievements. 

Do you have a little change you can spare?   It's time to empty those pockets for a good cause.  During Physical Therapy Month, Creative Rehab’s clinics in Libertyville and Gurnee will be collecting spare change to benefit two local food pantries.  Every little bit counts, so drop off every spare dime, penny and nickel you have.  All of the change that we collect will be donated to the Warren and Libertyville Townships' food pantries.  Help Creative Rehab change lives with your spare change!  

Creative Rehab has a Mission Statement that says, in part, “…education is the core element to all patient care…”  We love to provide our patients and the community with the tools they need to be successful.  During physical therapy month, our talented staff will share their expert knowledge about the body and how it moves.  Visit our website or follow us on Facebook throughout October to learn more.

National Physical Therapy Month is a wonderful time to find out more about what a physical therapist does and how their knowledge can benefit you and your family.  Feel free to stop by the nearest Creative Rehab location to take a look around and talk with one of our movement experts.
