EXTON, Pa., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Physiotherapy Associates, the nation's foremost provider of outpatient rehabilitation services, today announced that its more than 600 clinics will offer a free, 15-minute 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 Dan Connors, 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 600 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 care, which can lead to a successful treatment program."

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 know that physical therapy is still an unknown to many people, and these consultations provide a quick view into how patients can get better – quicker. 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 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 physical screen, and explain how physical therapy can improve their daily lives. Potential patients should call the most conveniently-located clinic to determine if a physician's prescription for services is required by law prior to their consultation appointment.
