World Physiotherapy Day - 8 September

Take control of your chronic pain

Each year, on 8 September, we celebrate World Physiotherapy Day—a global event recognising the important role physiotherapists play in the community and the relationships they have with their patients.

The theme for World Physiotherapy Day 2019 is "chronic pain" and the role that physiotherapy and physical activity can have in helping people manage chronic pain.

  • Chronic pain affects more that 3.2 million Australians
  • 1 in 5 people live with chronic pain
  • 1 in 3 older Australians have chronic pain

People with chronic pain also commonly experience depression, fatigue and poor sleep.
