May is National Physiotherapy Month
With over 20,000 registered physiotherapists in Canada, National Physiotherapy Month is an opportunity to celebrate the profession and recognize the expertise and care physiotherapists provide to promote good health, prevent injury and improve the physical function and well-being of Canadians through treatment of a wide range of conditions.
During May, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) will celebrate the physiotherapy profession through various, initiatives that will serve to engage members, patients and the public alike. Throughout the month, patients and the public will have the opportunity to learn more about what physiotherapists do and how they help their patients live fuller, healthier and more independent lives.
A social media program will introduce a SAY THANKS program that will allow individuals and patients to share a story about how a physiotherapist has made a difference in mobility, wellness or quality of life.
Our National Physiotherapy Month website, www.npmcanada.ca, will allow CPA members and visitors to:
• Learn more about physiotherapists and National Physiotherapy Month
• Download posters and other marketing materials
• Take advantage of health-related incentives
• Recognize a physiotherapist who has provided outstanding care
We look forward to an exciting National Physiotherapy Month this May.
