Every year, World Physiotherapy Day is an opportunity for physiotherapists from all over the world to raise awareness about their crucial role in keeping people of all ages active.

The campaign message of World Physiotherapy Day 2017 is “Physical activity for life”. The message builds on World Health Organization recommendations for moderate and vigorous activity, and a range of research and reports showing the benefits of physical activity in maintaining health in people of all ages.
