“Health is a state of complete physical,
mental and social well-being and not
merely the absence of disease or

(WHO 1946

“Physical therapy provides services to individuals and populations to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the lifespan”
“Fysiotherapie is het vakgebied van het menselijk bewegen: de fysiotherapeut houdt zich bezig met het bewegen van mensen in hun dagelijkse omgeving en maatschappelijke participatie.”
health is not just a state, but also "a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities

WHO 1986
“health is not about age, it's about attitude! Why not?”
“A healthy individual is a man who is well balanced bodily and mentally, and well adjusted to his physical and social environment.

He is in full control of his physical and mental faculties, can adapt to environmental changes,

so long as they do not exceed normal limits,

and contributes to the welfare of society according to his ability.

Health therefore is not simply the absence of disease; it is something positive, a joyful attitude towards life, and a cheerful acceptance of the responsibilities that life puts upon the individual.”

Henry Sigrist 1941
