World Physical Therapy Day was observed on the 8th of September 2018 at RMI
World Physical Therapy Day is observed on the 8th of September every year to mark the importance of physical therapy for the well being and mobility of patients suffering from mobility issues caused by injuries, osteoarthritis, or a stroke. Amongst other factors, mental health is an essential but often neglected aspect of the road to recovery for such patients. Research shows that 20% of patients suffering from osteoarthritis suffer from depression, while the same happens with 33% of the stroke patients and 38% of those with frailty.
An awareness walk followed by a free camp for Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy was scheduled on 8th of September, 2018 at Rehman Medical Institute.
