How to Celebrate World Physiotherapy Day?

World Physiotherapy Day is observed every year on September 8. It is celebrated to raise awareness about the critical role of physical therapists and chronic pain therapies in keeping people healthy and fit. Physical therapists attempt to treat an injury or deformity, educate patients about healthy behaviors, and restore lost or damaged functionality. Chronic pain is linked to a variety of medical diseases, including low back pain, cervical and thoracic pain, shoulder pain, headache problems, cancer, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, and osteoarthritis.



Here are few ways to celebrate World Physical Therapy Day:

1. Join physical therapy events in your country

You can easily join any organized events around you that have already been set up by experts. On World Physical Therapy Day, many countries throughout the world host a variety of events. Brazil, Ghana, Iceland, Malta, Sri Lanka, and Turkey, in addition to the United States and Canada, hold events. Walk-a-thons, educational lectures, and exercise clinics are among the events. Ghana's physiotherapy association provides free screening and consulting sessions.

2. Show some love to physical therapists you know

Have you ever benefited greatly from physical therapy? Perhaps a physical therapist assisted you in recovering from an injury. Perhaps physical therapy has assisted you in managing your pain. In any event, if you've ever seen a physical therapist, praise them for their efforts. You can also express gratitude to a physical therapist if your child, other family members, or a loved one has ever benefited from their services.

3. Do some research and share moments online

Participate in some physical therapy studies to broaden your understanding, as well as participate in various exercises. Simply getting up and moving is a terrific way to commemorate this day. Encourage others to do the same by posting your discoveries and images of activities on your social media pages!
