World Physiotherapist Day

World PT Day is observed to generate awareness about the crucial contribution physiotherapists make to society, enabling people to be mobile, well, and independent. This is observed on 8 September.

Designated in 1996, World PT Day is promoted by World Physiotherapy.

The date of September 8 was chosen as World PT Day in 1996. World Physiotherapy was established on this day in 1951. The day honours the world’s physiotherapy community’s togetherness and unity.
