Policy type
Policy categories

Physical therapists provide services for a wide range of people to optimise their physical activity, from elite athletes to aging adults seeking to remain active as they age. More than any other profession, they prevent chronic disease by helping people become more active. Exercise is a principal component of physical therapy programmes designed to increase physical activity. This guideline has been developed for the use of WCPT member organisations supporting physical therapists in their endeavours to deliver high quality evidence based exercise programmes to their patients/clients of any age.
