in association with AMRI Hospitals Ltd.



The campaign message of World Physical Therapy Day 2019 was ‘Chronic Pain’ and as a ritual like previous years, Nopany Institute of Healthcare Studies (NIHS) adoptedthe theme of the WCPT to celebrate World Physical Therapy Day. The day marks the unity and solidarity of the Global Physiotherapy community. It provides a platform to recognise the work that Physiotherapists do for their patients and community.

This year the World Physical Therapy Day 2019celebration took place in two phases. The first phase was Poster competition among the students of NIHSwith the theme topic ‘Chronic Pain’ and the second phase was Physiotherapy awareness campaign in community on Chronic Pain.

8th September provided us an opportunity to educate ourselves and interact with each other to share our views about chronic pain.


Some undergraduate physiotherapy students enthusiastically participated in a poster competition. The students represented their house and topics were different regions of the body; Cervical spine/ neck pain; Low back pain, Knee pain and shoulder pain. The posters were hand painted mainly and described the physiology of pain, causes and sources of chronic pain and management of chronic pain. 64 students participated and put up 16 posters, 4 per group. They presented their posters and it was a commendable group effort. Students were judged based on their concept, knowledge, display and presentation and ability to handle questions.

Keeping in mind our service towards the community, NIHS team conducted a physiotherapy campaign to make the patients aware on the role of physiotherapy in chronic pain and how they can lead a pain free life. To educate people and spread awareness on chronic pain we distributed the flyers and campaign materials which were shared by the WCPT. We also translated the posters in two vernacular languages- Bengali and Hindi Version so that the local people can read and understand clearly the message that we are trying to spread.


80 undergraduate and post-graduate physiotherapy students and faculty members participated in the event. Two teams were created. One team of 40 physiotherapy students and faculty members conducted a home to home campaign. This team reached the community where people were unaware on the role physiotherapy in pain management. We visited round 50-60 families in Ward no 24, and Ward no 26 in Girish Park area, North Kolkata, West Bengal and found that in most of homes, one or the other family members suffered from a painful conditions like Lumbar Spondylosis, loss of movement due to Adhesive Capsulitis, Osteoarthritis Knee, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Cervical spondylosis, etc, but had ignored the pain due to the influence of myths and disbelieves. We spoke to each patient and found some patients had been ignoring their suffering as they believed that surgery was their last resort.

The second team set up a camp at North Kolkata Ananda Bashar Club located in Beadon Street, Kolkata, West Bengal. One of the patients who visited our campaign site had been suffering from chronic low back pain with radiation to his left legand could walk with difficulty. He was a young boy in his early twenties, doing a front desk job and had not paid any heed to his condition as he understood that there was no real cure for his condition and now. We did a preliminary examination and discovered he has a Lumbar Disc Prolapse, so we had advised him to undergo physiotherapy treatment. Our motto was to break the myths about chronic pain, educate people about the control measuresand explain the benefits of exercise for chronic pain. Flyers were distributed to around 500 people and those who suffered from chronic pain were advised to visit Nopany Physiotherapy Clinic for a detailed assessment and physiotherapy treatment which would be provided to them free of cost for 10 sessions as a part of the campaign.

We concluded the program with a positive feeling that we couldspread the message on the role of Physiotherapy in combating challenges of chronic pain and provide effective methods in control of their conditions, increase their activity levels and improve their quality of life.
