Back in September it was World Physiotherapy day on the 8th September and I took it upon myself to help raise the awareness of neurological physiotherapy. I am extremely passionate about what neurological physiotherapists do, as many members of the public have no idea about the vital aspects of our role. And how we can significantly improve the quality of life for someone living with a neurological condition at any stage of their life.
To help increase this awareness I recorded 8 short videos on the 8 days of September leading up to World Physiotherapy day recording “A day in the life of a neurological physio”, check out each of the videos below;
