World Physical Therapy Day!

World Physical Therapy Day!



In 1951, the World Confederation of Physical Therapy declared September 8 to be World
Physical Therapy Day! The purpose of this day in 2016 is to highlight the value physical
therapists make to the older population in preventing illness, improving and maintain mobility and independence.


Physical therapists are uniquely qualified to be movement and exercise experts around the world. Physiotherapist-led exercise programs reduce the risk of falls in older adults by 32%. Physical activity has been down to reduce the risk dementia and lower the death rate among seniors.

Physical therapy has been shown to an effective way to improve health and independence.
At Professional Physical Therapy and Training, we pride ourselves on being a community
resource for seniors and in helping seniors stay as independent as they can be. We hope you join us September 8, 2016 in celebrating World Physical Therapy Day!!
