World Physical Therapy Day matters.
In 1996, WCPT designated 8th September as World Physical Therapy Day. This is the date WCPT was founded in 1951.
The day marks the unity and solidarity of the global physical therapy community. It is an opportunity to recognize the work that physical therapists do for their patients and community. Using World Physical Therapy Day as a focus, WCPT aims to support member organisations in their efforts to promote the profession and advance their expertise.
