On September 8, we celebrate World Physiotherapy Day

In 1996, on the initiative of World Physiotherapy (formerly World Confederation for Physical Therapy), September 8 was established as a holiday for the entire global physiotherapy community. This special holiday has been celebrated for 27 years now!

In 2023, the leading theme of World Physiotherapy Day is the role of physiotherapy and physiotherapists in the treatment of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, axial spondyloarthropathy and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

Physiotherapists help patients affected by various forms of arthritis function in everyday life, cope with pain, but also plan appropriate forms of activity and exercises and support patients in maintaining fitness.
