With over 20,000 registered physiotherapists in Canada, National Physiotherapy Month is an opportunity to celebrate the profession and recognize the expertise and care that physiotherapists provide to promote good health, prevent injury, and improve the physical function and well-being of Canadians through the treatment of a wide range of conditions.
Physiotherapists, physiotherapist assistants and physiotherapy students across the country organize activities such as fun-runs and walks, open houses at hospitals and clinics, presentations to students, informative booths at garden and golf shows, presentations at local community centres, and more.
Physiotherapists make important contributions to the health and well-being of Canadians every day. As primary care professionals, Canadian physiotherapists promote mobility, wellness and independence for all ages and use their extensive education and clinical experience to assess, diagnose and treat a broad range of conditions. Physiotherapists know how the body works, how to keep it moving and how to get it moving again.
