World Physical Therapy Day 2017

The human body is remarkably strong and resilient, yet often easy to damage and injure. Physical therapists work day in and day out to undo damage, restore healthy function and education people on how to improve their habits to improve their overall well-being. World Physical Therapy Day takes place on September 8th, and it provides an opportunity for physical therapists spanning the globe to raise awareness of how the practice of physical therapy helps keep people mobile and improves wellness.

Why World Physical Therapy Day Matters World Physical Therapy Day

Since 1996, every September 8th has marked World Physical Therapy Day. This date was established by the World Confederation for Physical Therapy, and it is based on the date that the organization was founded in 1951.

This day is important for the physical therapy community because it provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of PT.
