About this event

Brain Injury Association of York Region is pleased to present All About Physiotherapy - 2021 Brain Injury Awareness Month

In Canada, June is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Each year national, provincial, and local associations run campaigns to increase awareness about the prevalence of brain injury; the obstacles that exist for those with brain injury; and the need for more services and support at all stages of recovery.

For 2021, the theme of Brain Injury Awareness Month is focused on raising awareness of brain injury in Canada - in other words, shining a light on this often invisible disability.

Each week, for the month of June, the Brain Injury Association of York Region will be showcasing a different aspect of recovery following a brain injury. Please join us for one, some, or all!

Please join Hoong Phang, Registered Physiotherapist and Managing Director of Propel Physiotherapy, as he discusses the role of physiotherapy after a brain injury.

- take-home, actionable items that are meant for all education and exposure levels

- common symptomology associated with brain injury

- possible interventions to help with persisting issues

- the benefits of movement and exercise and how a little can go a long way
