Every October, Freeman celebrates National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM).

Every October, Freeman celebrates National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) – a time when we recognize our dedicated Freeman physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) who help transform people’s lives by restoring and improving their motion.

Movement and exercise are fundamental to leading a healthy and happy life! Freeman PTs and PTAs can identify factors that prevent patients from being as active as possible and find ways to help them overcome obstacles so they can be well, mobile and self-sufficient. Freeman PTs and PTAs play an integral role in helping our patients be healthy and encourage everyone to choose physical therapy in their battles against pain, limited mobility and other ailments. Physical therapy can also help individuals combat future injury and chronic disease.

It’s very rewarding to have the opportunity to make a positive impact in someone’s life,” explained Jeff Borum, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Freeman. “Whether it’s from an accident/injury, chronic condition or a planned procedure, we get to help patients regain their confidence, independence and freedom.”

While focusing on the physical ailments, Freeman therapists help patients with strengthening, balance and endurance and also serve as motivators to tackle the emotional and mental components for long-term success.

“Freeman has passionate physical therapists ready to treat patients in a variety of settings,” said Borum. “From Outpatient/Sports to patients in the hospital and pediatrics to work injury therapy, there are skilled clinicians available to meet our community’s needs!”

National Physical Therapy Month is an important time to raise awareness about the key role PTs and PTAs play in helping people find relief from pain, improve mobility and overall functional ability, and live healthier, more physically able lives. If you feel a physical therapist could benefit you, talk to your primary care provider for a referral. Freeman physical therapist professionals are ready to help you take that next step towards moving and feeling better!
