BURLINGTON, Mass. – Sept. 20, 2022 – PRLog — HD Physical Therapy celebrates National Rehabilitation Awareness Week, September 19-25, 2022. Since 1976, the mission of National Rehabilitation Awareness Week is to be a nationwide celebration that helps educate people about the benefits and impact of rehabilitation, develop programs which aim to increase opportunities for the nearly 50 million Americans with disabilities and help those who are disabled live up to their fullest potential. This year, the focus is on raising awareness of the #PowerOfMedicalRehab, providing information on medical rehabilitation patient outcomes and disseminating useful resources and reviewing patient journeys to recovery.
Disability is the consequence of an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or some combination of these. Some estimates suggest that 10% of the world’s population has some form of disability. That number will grow significantly over the next 20 years as the baby-boomer generation enters later life, when the risk of disability is greatest. The field of physical therapy is essential to ensuring an optimal future for people with disability across the globe.
Most people share the desire to be as well, mobile, independent and as pain free as possible. Physical therapists are highly trained, licensed health care professionals who diagnose and restore people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physical therapists examine each individual, develop a plan of care, and use various treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent, or work to improve disability.
