National Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Health Months
This October, our team at Massapequa Pain Management & Rehabilitation is celebrating both National Physical Therapy and National Chiropractic Health month! Our Massapequa Chiropractor and Physical Therapists will be celebrating and spreading the word to every one of our patients! We want to remind our patients as well as others in the community about the benefits of these alternative treatment options. Both chiropractors and physical therapists can be used as a drug-free alternative for pain relief. Each profession aims to share a message with the public to help spread awareness.
During this October, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), has chosen to encourage people across the U.S. to ChoosePT, and recognize that physical therapy can be used in a variety of different ways, including improved mobility, pain management, treating chronic conditions, as well as helping assist patients in their recovery. Inversely, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), would like to emphasize the importance of musculoskeletal health. Through chiropractic care, you can help increase your strength, stability, and improve your overall wellness!
