Hong Kong

This year the Hong Kong Physical Therapy Association celebrates its 50th anniversary.

To kick start these celebrations a press conference was held on the 1st September publicising the results of a study on the health effects of using electronic devices such as computers and mobile phones among the people of Hong Kong.

On World Physical Therapy Day itself, activities were held to publicise the role of physical therapy in pain management for the elderly and the importance of regular exercise with the prolonged use of electronic devices. Activities held included educational talks, health booths and exercise classes.
