While ad­dress­ing the par­tic­i­pants the Vice Chan­cel­lor LUMHS Prof. Noshad A. Shaikh ex­pressed that ev­i­dence shows that peo­ple who stay ac­tive are more likely to keep work­ing, en­gag­ing in so­ci­ety and en­joy­ing life, the phys­io­ther­a­pists have a vi­tal role in help­ing them do so at ev­ery stage of life. This is the mes­sage that thou­sands of phys­io­ther­a­pists are send­ing out on World Phys­i­cal Ther­apy Day which falls on 8th of Septem­ber ev­ery year. The day is an op­por­tu­nity for phys­io­ther­a­pists from all over the world to raise aware­ness about the cru­cial con­tri­bu­tion the pro­fes­sion makes to keep­ing peo­ple well, mo­bile and in­de­pen­dent.

He added that the pro­fes­sion of phys­io­ther­apy helps mil­lions of peo­ple ev­ery year to pre­vent and man­age the ef­fects of non com­mu­ni­ca­ble dis­eases, along with the ef­fects of in­ac­tive lifestyles, ag­ing, ill­ness, ac­ci­dents, and the stresses and strains of life.

The Chief Guest Se­nior Min­is­ter Mr. Nisar Ah­mad Khuhro ex­pressed that phys­io­ther­a­pists are ex­perts in de­vel­op­ing and main­tain­ing peo­ple’s abil­ity to move and func­tion through­out their lives. With an ad­vanced un­der­stand­ing of how the body moves and what keeps it from mov­ing well, they pro­mote well­ness, mo­bil­ity and in­de­pen­dence. They treat and pre­vent many prob­lems caused by pain, ill­ness, dis­abil­ity and dis­ease, sport and work re­lated in­juries, age­ing and in­ac­tiv­ity.

He added that gov­ern­ment will con­sider cre­at­ing the posts of Phys­io­ther­a­pists in Ba­sic Health Units of the Prov­ince.
