World Physical Therapy Day

World Physical Therapy Day is an annual global event celebrated on September 8th, dedicated to raising awareness about the crucial role that physical therapists play in improving people’s health and well-being. This day is an opportunity to recognize and appreciate the contributions of these healthcare professionals who help individuals regain mobility, manage pain, and recover from injuries or surgeries.

Physical therapy, often referred to as physiotherapy, is a multidisciplinary field that focuses on enhancing and restoring movement and function in individuals of all ages. It is not only about treating injuries but also about preventing them and promoting overall health and wellness. Physical therapists work with patients to create personalized treatment plans that may include exercises, manual therapy, and other techniques tailored to the specific needs of each individual.

On World Physical Therapy Day, various events and activities are organized to educate the public about the benefits of physical therapy and to showcase the skills and expertise of physical therapists. This day serves as a reminder of the critical role these professionals play in helping people recover from accidents, surgeries, or chronic conditions, enabling them to lead active and fulfilling lives.

In a world where the importance of physical health and well-being is increasingly recognized, World Physical Therapy Day serves as a reminder that physical therapists are instrumental in improving the quality of life for countless individuals. It’s a day to celebrate their dedication and commitment to promoting movement and functional independence, making a significant difference in the lives of their patients.

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
