JFS Home Health celebrates National Physical Therapy Month in October

What’s Happening

With Physical Therapy Month taking place this month, Jewish Family Service plans to recognize the “incredible work of its amazing physical therapists,” says Jan Ganderson, JFS director of nursing.

“Hardly a day goes by that we don’t receive a call in our office complimenting the therapist for the care that he or she provided to a patient,” she says.

Anyone who has worked with a physical therapist on their journey to health knows “transformative” is the perfect word to describe the abilities of these medical professionals. Whether a patient is recovering from joint replacement surgery, a broken bone, pain from arthritis or other musculoskeletal problems, JFS’ physical therapists aim to heal patients of their painful ailments, improve their strength and functional abilities, and restore their health to the fullest level possible.

“The medical professionals who have dedicated their lives to physical therapy inherently know what their work can accomplish. During National Physical Therapy Month, we want to make sure everyone knows,” says Ganderson.
