World Physiotherapy Day - 8 September

Rehabilitation and Long COVID - how to take part

September 8 is World Physiotherapy Day. This year's theme will focus on rehabilitation and Long COVID, and the role of physiotherapists in the treatment and management of people affected by Long COVID.

Fact: 1 in 10 of all Long COVID patients will exhibit symptoms for a period of 12 weeks or longer.

Long COVID is different for everyone, and rehabilitation for Long COVID must be tailored to the individual. As physiotherapists, you play a key role in delivering safe and effective rehabilitation that is fundamental to recovery after COVID.

Get involved

The World Physiotherapy developed a range of posters and factsheets to share the message of how physiotherapists can help manage Long COVID symptoms. Access these assets by visiting the toolkit.
