An estimated 3.6 million Canadians are affected by neurological conditions. Neurological conditions are disorders and diseases that occur as a result of injury, genetics and exposures and include epilepsy, Alzheimer disease and other dementias, cerebrovascular diseases including stroke, migraine and other headache disorders, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, neuroinfections, brain tumours, traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma like concussions.
PABC’s 2017 public awareness campaign #PhysioCanHelp launches today to spread the message message that the work of physiotherapists enhances patients’ lives every day. We know that physiotherapy treats so much more than just musculoskeletal conditions, and we want to make sure that the Physio Can Help message comes through loud and clear to British Columbians. Our profession provides treatments and preventative interventions for a myriad of injuries and conditions, unfortunately the general public does not associate physiotherapy with a broad range of conditions.
The Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia's fifth position paper in advance of the provincial general election scheduled for May 9 is entitled BC's Opioid Crisis: How Physio Can Help with non-pharmacological management of pain. The paper is in response to the soaring number of drug deaths in the province in recent years.
