May is National Physiotherapy Month

April 25, 2020

Physiotherapists play a vital role in the health-care system. They use their specialized, hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability, and improve people's overall quality of life.

ONA is proud to recognize the work of these highly skilled professionals by celebrating National Physiotherapy Month every May. This year we recognize the struggles and dedication of physiotherapists who continue to work on the front lines to meet the emergency needs of their patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
