World Physiotherapy Day 2023


This year’s World Physiotherapy Day focused on inflammatory arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and axial spondyloarthritis . 

Throughout the week, exercise classes were held at Karin Grech Hospital’s physiotherapy outpatient department and at The Imperial nursing and residential retirement home. Two hydrotherapy sessions were also held at St Vincent de Paul Long Term Care Facility.

These exercise classes were carried out for the benefit for those who attended and in order to raise awareness on the importance of exercise for anyone diagnosed with arthritis.

Thank you to all those who participated!

Abstract Corner

MAP introduces ‘Abstract Corner’, a space for physiotherapists to be able to share their work in research and inspire discussion. Interested members can submit an abstract of their research to share on our social media; if available, we will also post the link to the full text. Readers may then discuss or pose questions to the author.

MAP would like to promote and share the achievements of its members in research, for the educational gain of the physiotherapy community in the Maltese Islands.

If interested, please ask for further information, or submit your research, by sending an email to [email protected]
