We are all gearing up for World Physical Therapy Day here at APR! Here’s a little about it.
“World Physical Therapy Day falls on 8th September every year, and is an opportunity for physical therapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution their profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent”
Why does World Physical Therapy Day matter?
In 1996, WCPT (World Confederation Of Physical Therapy) designated 8th September as World Physical Therapy Day. This is the date WCPT was founded in 1951.
The day marks the unity and solidarity of the global physical therapy community. It is an opportunity to recognise the work that physical therapists do for their patients and community. Using World Physical Therapy Day as a focus, WCPT aims to support member organisations in their efforts to promote the profession and advance their expertise.
