The human body is elementary to hurt and break, especially while participating in strenuous physical activities like sports or athletics.
Physical therapists restore lost or injured functionality by clinical methods, teaching healthy habits, and reclaiming lost or damaged functionality. As a result, Physical Therapy Day is dedicated to these professionals worldwide to honor their commitment to keeping us all fighting fit.
Why World PT Day matters in 2021
The 8th of September was declared World Physical Therapy Day in 1996. World Physiotherapy was created on this date in 1951.
The day celebrates the global physiotherapy community’s togetherness and solidarity. In addition, it’s an opportunity to honor physiotherapists’ contributions to their patients and communities. World Physiotherapy hopes to support member organizations to promote the profession and enhance their skills by focusing on World PT Day.
According to reports from throughout the world, World PT Day activities have a beneficial impact on the profession’s profile and standing with the public and policymakers.
Many World Physiotherapy member organizations already have national physiotherapy days, weeks, and months in place. Organizations that do not have their dedicated day, on the other hand, frequently use September 8.

World Physical Therapy Day is a chance for physiotherapists worldwide to promote awareness about the critical role they play in keeping people healthy, mobile, and independent.
