Belgium

To mark World Physical Therapy Day 2014, Axxon, Physical Therapy in Belgium, drew attention to the guide produced under the EU initiative “Pain in the Back”.

The guide looks at avoiding back pain in children and teenagers and is available as a PDF for download in German, English, Spanish and French at: www.painintheback.info/home.html.

To further promote the initiative, World Physical Therapy Day was used as an opportunity for physical therapists to go into schools to present slides, and measure the weight of children and their bags.

Communications were sent to all members of the association encouraging them to use the materials and give presentations in schools in their local communities.
