Swiss physio bus hits the road

Physioswiss, the Swiss Association of Physiotherapy, celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, and on World Physical Therapy Day its “physio bus” set off on a health promotion tour of the whole of Switzerland until 24th September 2009.

Visitors to the physio bus had the opportunity to test their personal level of fitness and to draw up, in conjunction with physiotherapists, a plan aimed at increasing their physical activity. The physio bus was also designed to direct public attention to the fact that physiotherapy services are not only suited to treatment and rehabilitation, but to prevention, health promotion, advice and research.
