The Australian Physiotherapy Associations Launches I Love my Physio Competition for 2015!

There are roughly 19,000 physios and the goal of this campaign is to raise awareness to the impact they have on the lives of Australians. The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) is inviting patients to share their stories of how a physiotherapist has improved and impacted their life.

The ambassador of this years #ilovemyphysio campaign is Gill Hicks. Gill lost both of her legs in the 2005 London Underground bombings and notes physiotherapy helped her to rebuild her life physically and mentally.

You can read about past winners of the I ♥ My Physio campaign on the website. Additionally, I ♥ My Physio resources can be found to help promote this years event.

The deadline to submit a story for the I ♥ My Physio Campaign is 14 December 2015. You can submit and review stories here.  One lucky person will even win $1000.
