WORLD PHYSIOTHERAPY DAY 2020 – BY MIRZA ALI
Join us in celebrating physiotherapists worldwide, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic with the theme – “Rehabilitation after COVID-19.”
World Physiotherapy Day is celebrated every year on the 8th of September and gives physiotherapists worldwide a chance to promote their profession and raise awareness of how crucial their services are in keeping people well, mobile and independent. The advent of the COVID-19 has brought awareness to the importance of physiotherapists in helping critically ill patients recover physically and gaining control over their respiratory functions, aspects seriously affected by COVID-19.
Their contribution can aid in the efficient, effective and quick recovery of COVID-19 patients, allowing them to return to some semblance of normalcy, even after having left the hospitals through the use of telehealth programs.
Let us do our utmost best to keep our physiotherapy professionals safe and secure as they continue to provide frontline services to the masses.
