Each year on September 8th, individuals and organizations across the world celebrate physiotherapists and the work they do to empower, promote independence and improve the quality of life for people across all ages and abilities.
This year's theme for World Physiotherapy Day is focused on Long COVID and highlighting how physiotherapy can help manage the long-term issues many people are experiencing after having contracted COVID-19. If you're interested to learn more about this issue, we have provided a helpful list of resources for you:
- World PT Day Toolkit

- Humility and Acceptance: Working Within Our Limits With Long COVID and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
