Physical therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants are health care professionals who treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives.
Physical therapists are experts in restoring and improving the motion that is so crucial to your well-being. For instance, when you have pain, daily activities can become a challenge — picking up a child, grocery shopping, or enjoying an evening walk — just to name a few. It is good to know that physical therapists are the experts on whom you can depend to help you move forward.
In recognition of the importance and value of physical therapy in improving people's lives, Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN) is joining in the national observance of October as National Physical Therapy Month. This year's theme is "Move Forward: Physical Therapy Brings Motion to Life." ECHN offers a variety of physical therapy services in its Rehabilitation Services Department, demonstrating the range and scope of situations in which physical therapy can play an important role.
