Chartered Physiotherapist


Chronic pain is a significant global health burden – with low back pain causing more disability than any other condition. The role of physiotherapists in helping people with chronic pain to take control of their condition, increase their activity, and improve their quality of life is the theme of this year’s World Physiotherapy Day on 8 September 2019.

Four Irish physiotherapists will this week take part in an international three day virtual event which aims to share best practice across the world on keeping people up, dressed and moving. 

The End PJ Paralysis Online Summit event will run continuously for 72 hours from today (10th) through the 11th and 12th July.

As a way of providing members with an opportunity to raise and discuss those topics you feel need to be addressed, a Members Forum is being held to allow you to do this in an open and engaging group format.

This forum will be held as a breakfast meeting on the Saturday morning of the Society's annual conference and you are all invited to generate the discussion. Members will have the opportunity to meet with one another and board members alike and lead the conversation around any topics you may want to raise.
