Physiotherapists supporting people living with pain often use materials to support their learning and understanding of pain to promote behaviour change.
Despina Karargyri, PPA Equality and Diversity Officer has collated these links for people who require adapted or interpreted materials.

PTX: Physiotherapy Exercises

Selecting a different language also changes the website language, so select the exercises, then go to the homepage to change the language. The site automatically returns you to the exercises you have complied to save and send.
Culturally adapted resources
Making videos accessible
Many apps and sites can support closed captioning and auto translation subtitles, but YouTube has this functionality embedded. This means any YouTube video can be viewed with automatic subtitles by selecting the option in the settings (bottom right hand corner of the video).
Your own videos can also be closed captioned, and translated into other languages. This document illustrates how to do this.
