Physiotherapy Associates Marks October as National Physical Therapy Month with Free 15-Minute Healthy Lifestyle Consultations at More Than 650 Clinics

EXTON, Pa., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Physiotherapy Associates, the nation's foremost provider of outpatient rehabilitation services, today announced that its more than 650 clinics will offer a free, no obligation 15-minute healthy lifestyle consultation with a licensed clinician to celebrate October as "National Physical Therapy Month," as designated by the American Physical Therapy Association.

"'National Physical Therapy Month' offers anyone living with pain the opportunity to learn more about the tremendous benefits of physical therapy," said Andrew DeVoe, Chief Executive Officer, Physiotherapy Associates. "During the month of October, anyone who has pain from a chronic condition, from surgery, or from general use can stop in to any of our more than 650 clinics across the U.S. and quickly learn what's needed to get back to a healthy lifestyle. In just 15 minutes with one of our more than 1,300 licensed clinicians, patients will experience our outstanding one-on-one consultation, which can lead to healthy living."

Every year, "National Physical Therapy Month" highlights the health benefits of physical therapy, the partnership between patient and therapist, and a number of conditions that are treatable with physical therapy, including common ailments such as back and neck pain, sports injuries and other conditions from trauma, overuse or age.

Physiotherapy Associates' COO Pete Grabaskas, PT, stated, "Our physical therapists continue to help millions of our patients return to their pre-injury, pre-surgery, or pre-pain lifestyles. We understand that physical therapy is still an unknown to many people, and these consultations provide valuable insight into how patients can more quickly achieve a healthy lifestyle. As a physical therapist for 25 years, I know that our clinicians are well-suited to give our patients the care they need and provide the outcomes they deserve."

Anyone interested in a free, 15-minute healthy lifestyle consultation offered during the month of October should locate their nearest Physiotherapy Associates clinic on the company's website: Appointments will be taken during regular clinic hours. During the consultation, patients can expect a high-quality, licensed physical therapist to listen to their concerns, conduct a brief screen, and explain how physical therapy may be able to improve an active adult's daily life. The consultation is not available for persons with Medicare or other federal health insurance plans, is not intended to diagnose existing conditions, and does not constitute medical advice. A physician should determine if a specific medical condition is appropriate for Physical, Occupational, or Speech Therapy.
