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.
