Greetings from PHYSIOTIMES!!
September is special in many regards. First and the foremost, across the globe, there is celebration of the noble profession of Physiotherapy on 8th September. If thought deeply, life itself is a Celebration, and if you choose the correct profession, the whole work-life becomes a vacation.
From my experience of 15 years in Physiotherapy, I would happily suggest all the young, budding Physios out there to keep evolving yourself, and re-invent yourself to be your best version. Every day at your clinic or while teaching your students, Celebrate Physiotherapy every day, question yourself, learn from everyone and everything around you.
This magical issue celebrates Women Power, as we have with us, Ms. Supriya Jatav – the International Karate Champion discussing her experiences and trust on Physiotherapy.
