WORLD Physical Therapy Day was celebrated on Thursday, 8 September and the aim of the campaign was to promote “movement for health”. Being active adds life to one’s years and the team at Debbie Cameron Physiotherapy played their part in encouraging movement.

At 2.30pm on the day, the specialists at Hillcrest Centenary Medical Centre got together to lunge the distance of the car park. The physiotherapist corrected posture and technique as participants felt their muscles burn with each lunge.

"It was great for the group to come out from behind their desks, get some fresh air and be active.
"With the advancement of technology society has become increasingly sedentary and we need to make a concerted effort to change this.
“Doing 20 minutes of light exercise every day is encouraged not only for your health, but for your happiness too," said Cameron.
