OPA MEMBERS – LOGIN TO ACCESS THE FULL CONTENT 

May is National Physiotherapy Month (NPM)  

Physiotherapists, physiotherapist assistants and students organize activities in May across the country to highlight how physiotherapy helps lives.

Look for events such as fun-runs and walks, open houses at hospitals and clinics, presentations, informative displays at garden and golf shows and local community centres and more. Physiotherapy can help you, your family and friends recover from a range of ailments.

We have materials to help you promote physiotherapy including presentations, brochures and giveaways.
