October Is National Physical Therapy Month

In honor of National Physical Therapy Month, The Execu|Search Group would like to thank the physical therapists and physical therapy assistants we partner with for all their hard work! This year’s theme is Choose PT for Safe Pain Management, which encourages Americans to choose physical therapy over opioids when treating pain.

“PTs and PTAs are invaluable to the organizations they work for and the patients they serve,” says Daniela DAlessandro, a Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group’s Healthcare division who specializes in therapy. “Treating patients of all ages and abilities, they help improve quality of life in a number of ways. Whether they are helping an individual recover from a traumatic injury or giving a patient an alternative to surgery or prescription opioids, they are there for every step of the treatment plan.”

With these benefits in mind, more and more Americans are utilizing the services of PTs and PTAs. As a result, the BLS projects faster than average growth for both these specialties. “By 2024, jobs for PTs and PTAs are projected to grow by 34% and 40% respectfully,” says Daniela. “We know our therapy providers work tirelessly to help meet this growing demand for care. For this, we can’t thank you enough!”
