Throughout October, National Physical Therapy Month, APTA is providing resources to help people learn how to age well. The bottom line is you shouldn't wait until you're feeling the effects of aging to start thinking about your long-term health. Find more information and resources on healthy aging in our Health Center for Older Adults.
