hello everyone!!!!!!!


Physical therapists are helping people become fit at every age.

Saturday 07 September 2013 - 13:19:51


Physical therapists can help people become fit and active contributors to society, whatever their physical limitations or stage of life. This is the message that thousands of physical therapists (known in some countries as physiotherapists) are sending out on World Physical Therapy Day on 8th September.

Every year, physical therapists help millions of people prevent and overcome musculo-skeletal problems and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cancer. They do this by recommending safe and appropriate exercise programmes.

They help people throughout the lifespan. Studies have shown that older adults engaged in regular physical activity demonstrate improved balance, strength, coordination, motor control, flexibility, blood pressure and endurance. At the other end of the age range, physical activity prescribed by physical therapists counters the in activity and poor posture in children that canlead to obesity, musculoskeletal disorders and a range of other problems in adult life.

That is why the message for this World Physical Therapy Day is Fit for the Future.

Marilyn Moffat, WCPT’s President, says that because of their specialist knowledge physicaltherapists can help all children, adults and older people participate in physical activity. "Physicaltherapists can help them overcome physical problems that may restrict their ability to move," she says.

"Physical activity doesn't just mean more healthy people, but happier more productive people, whether young or aging. It's time for all of us to be fit for the future."
