As one of the most influential figures in public health in the UK over the past 40 years, Professor Sir Muir Gray says physiotherapy can help people to take a path that will lead to better health. His popular books on living well include ‘Sod 60!’ and ‘Sod 70!’
Professor Gray is convinced that physiotherapists are central to his public health message that more movement by people at all levels of society will result in a healthier, more productive population. And as a former chief knowledge officer at the NHS, Professor Gray wants the physiotherapy profession to use data and state-of-the-art technology to cement its role as a key player in the battle against lifestyle-related poor health.
