THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR FIRST DAY OF GIVING A HUGE SUCCESS!

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE SURPASSED OUR GOAL AND RAISED $4400!  THESE FUNDS WILL hELP THE IPTF CONTINUE TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT DIRECT ACCESS AND HOW PHYSICAL THERAPY CAN HELP LEAD THEM TO HEALTHIER LIFESTYLES. 
DIRECT ACCESS HAS MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON HOW PATIENTS CAN ACCESS PHYSICAL THERAPY.  HERE'S A PATIENT TESTIMONIAL--
"I WAS HAPPY TO HAVE HEARD THE NEWS THAT DIRECT ACCESS PASSED, BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. I TRY TO KEEP DOCTOR'S VISITS TO A MINIMUM. WHEN, MY BACK WASN'T GETTING BETTER WITH ACUPUNCTURE, MY ACUPUNCTURIST RECOMMENDED FYZICAL THERAPY AND BALANCE CENTERS - NAPERVILLE.  I WAS GRATEFUL THAT I DIDN'T NEED TO SEE AN MD FIRST AND NOW 10 VISITS LATER I AM FEELING SO MUCH BETTER. "
MISS THE DAY OF GIVING?  YOU CAN ALWAYS DONATE AND HELP THE IPTF CONTINUE ITS' MISSION.
