With the global changes in the environment such as increases in ageing population, low fertility, high incidence of non-communicable diseases (such as cancers, metabolic diseases and cardiovascular diseases), physical inactivity, and uneven distribution of medical resources, have created a huge impact to medical and health care systems.

Physical therapists need to dedicate in the aspects of education, clinical practice and research to meet the requirements of these modern needs.
