Today is another terrific, blessed day at the Ruthe B. Cowl Rehabilitation Center!

October has been proclaimed as National Physical Therapy Month, by the American Physical Therapy Association; to promote awareness of the many ways physical therapists (PT) and physical therapist assistants (PTA) can help improve quality of life.
This morning we kicked off the celebration by presenting our wonderful PT Staff with appreciation certificates, special PT shirts and gifts as tokens of our appreciation. This initiates a month long filled with different events and activities such as our 2nd annual PT parade, food drive, contests, PT appreciation luncheon and other informative events for our patients and staff; we will keep you posted!

So today all of us want to thank you for being the great therapists that you are!! And for impacting the lives of all the individuals and their families that come through our doors!
