World Physical Therapy Day 8th Sept

The WCPT have released a new press release for the upcoming Movement for Health world physical therapy day. If you’ve never come across world physical therapy day before it is a yearly event which promotes physical therapy’s contribution to global health. Last year thousands of therapists got involved on social media with the hashtag #worldptday to unite events globally.

Alongside this please use #addlifetoyears which compliments the theme of maintaining functional ability in older age. This message is of extreme importance to the WCPT and a challenge which faces us all. This is made all the more clear when you consider that by 2050 the global population will include two billion people aged 60 or over, and 400 million aged 80 or over.
