May is National Physiotherapy Month

April 27, 2023

Physiotherapists play a vital role in the health-care system. They use 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.

In 2023, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) has chosen the theme “Physiotherapy: Leading Action Toward Better Pain Management and Rehabilitation.” It highlights the critical role that physiotherapists play in the non-pharmacological pain management and rehabilitative care of Canadians.
