May is National Physiotherapy Month

April 22, 2019

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.

If you or your Local are celebrating National Physiotherapy Month, let us know by emailing and we will post the details here for other ONA members. We also invite you to submit any photos from your event – be sure to include the names and Local number with your submission.
