October is National Physical Therapy Month!

National PhysicalTherapy Month is a commemoration held each October by our governing body-- the American Physical Therapy Association. It greatly reminds us that we have a duty to inform our community about the good that physical therapy can do and all the bad that it can prevent. An ALARMING STUDY published in The Spine Journal showed that ONLY 7% of persons with lower back pain who went to their primary care physician for help were recommended to go to physical therapy for relief.That means 93% of people who have lower back pain never make it to physical therapy for relief.This was shocking to me especially since lower back pain is listed as #2 on World Disability Index and the 3rd

biggest expense for insurance companies in the United States behind Cancer and Heart Disease costs. Wow! Shocking! My take home from all of this is that conservative and non-invasive care is greatly underused when we need it. Our #1 mission at Marathon Physical Therapy is to help others in need so please pass our message along to your friends and family who may be suffering with lower back pain that help is out there. Please encourage them to call us for a consultation so that we can guide them to the care they need and deserve. Thank you. -Negin Jalayer
