The development of environmental physiotherapy comes with a wide range of practical implications. These include the design and operation of our clinical environments, new therapeutic approaches, patient education, advocacy, and even the development of entirely new fields of practice.


On this page, you will find a growing range of resources that will both help you apply environmental physiotherapy to your day-to-day practice as it is, but also help you transform the practice of physiotherapy as our understanding about the interconnections between health, environment, society, and physiotherapy continues to grow. Click on the images below to get more information about the featured areas of environmental physiotherapy practice.

In addition to the areas of practice already featured here, we foresee the development of many more approaches to EPT practice. These could include  EPT practice related to active transport and urban planning, disaster preparedness and response, (embodied) environmental education, occupational health and safety, and many many more. If you would like to support the development of featured pages on these or other areas of EPT practice, or you feel there is anything that could be added or improved on existing ones, please do not hesitate to get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of the page.
