This year, to mark National Physiotherapy Month, #NPM2022, we are highlighting the importance of our profession in an area that has been the talk of the town for the last couple of years. Long COVID. We want to share with you the many ways our profession can help and support  Long COVID.  

For #NPM2022, we want to emphasize the contribution of highly skilled Canadian physiotherapists, physiotherapist assistants, physiotherapy technologists and physiotherapy students and residents who are supporting and enabling Long COVID care in Canada.

Physiotherapy expertise is a critical partner in Long COVID support and recovery. Research has shown that physiotherapy is vital in rehab, intensive care units, hospital wards, step-down facilities, and community care. Physiotherapists are working in various health care domains to support current health system pressures and health care workforce planning and preparation due to COVID-19. Let’s use this opportunity to proudly show the nation the importance of our profession, especially now!
