8 september - World Physical Therapy Day

vr, 08/09/2017 - 10:30 -- admin

World Physical Therapy Day is on 8th September. The day is an opportunity for physical therapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution the profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent.

WCPT has produced a complete package of resources to help you plan and publicise events and campaigns for World Physical Therapy Day. This toolkit includes ideas, practical advice, information about the benefits of physical therapy, posters, leaflets, logos, banners and press releases. There is also a resource list for facts, research findings, statistics and articles to help you demonstrate the contribution of physical therapists.


The campaign message of World Physical Therapy Day 2017 is “Physical activity for life”, showing how physical therapists can help keep people of all ages active.

The message builds on World Health Organization recommendations for moderate and vigorous activity, and a range of research and reports showing the benefits of physical activity in maintaining health in people of all ages.

WCPT encourages member organisations and physical therapists around the world to use WCPT’s toolkit to convey the following key messages to the public and policy makers.

  • All healthy adults need to be physically active.
  • Physical therapists help integrate physical activity into daily life.
  • Physical therapists can advise on activities for people of all ages.

These messages are important not just to encourage health and activity in populations. They can help demonstrate how physical therapists keep people moving through interventions which maximise strength and mobility. Through advice and exercise programmes, physical therapists support people of all ages to achieve activity goals.

If you are an individual physical therapist or planning an activity with your colleagues at your workplace, remember to contact the WCPT member organisation in your country so that you link up with any activities that they may be planning.
