MediLodge Celebrates National Physical Therapy Month in October

National Physical Therapy Month is a nationwide observance held each October. This year’s theme “Move Forward: Physical Therapy Brings Motion to Life” reflects the physical therapy brand “Physical therapists help you to restore and improve motion to achieve long-term quality of life.”

The ability to “move forward” may be something each person takes for granted until pain, injury or illness interferes with the ability to move, work, walk, or perform basic self-care. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, therapeutic exercise, pathology, human development and aging to help decrease pain and improve mobility and function across each patient’s lifespan.

MediLodge of Rochester Hills has both a Physical Therapist and a Physical Therapist Assistant on staff to help our residents achieve their highest level of independence with mobility. Whether it is recovering from a stroke, healing after a fractured hip, regaining strength after a prolonged hospitalization or working on balance and strengthening to prevent falls, the Physical Therapy staff are here to help all residents achieve their personal mobility goals.
