World & National Physical Therapy Day
September 8 marks the World and National Physical Therapy Day! The National Library of the Philippines joins the celebration this year by featuring selected library materials about physical therapy.
The focus for this year’s World PT Day is arthritis, with an in-depth look at some forms of inflammatory arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and axial spondyloarthritis, and the role of Physical Therapists in increasing awareness and effectively managing these conditions, and facilitating individuals in maintaining an active and mobile lifestyle.
In the Philippines, the National PT Day is being celebrated by virtue of Proclamation No. 15, s. 1998: https://www.officialgazette.gov.ph/1998/09/08/proclamation-no-15-s-1998/
