At any stage of growth, a physical therapist's education can help the infant's mobility and strength increase. Babies with a disability that affects mobility are unable to walk.

Have you ever profited from physical therapy? Have you ever benefited from physical therapy? Maybe a physical therapist helped you recover from an injury. Or perhaps physical therapy has helped alleviate your pain. Regardless of the situation, if you've ever seen a physical therapist, thank them for their hard work. If your child, other family members, or loved one who has ever benefited from seeing one, you can also thank a physical therapist.

If you have never had a need for physical therapy, a great way to start this day is to get up and get moving. Encourage others to do the same!
