[en] This study aimed to understand physiotherapists’ awareness about their physical activity (PA) promoting role and to analyse their actions to promote PA. 185 physiotherapists fulfilled a questionnaire related to their perceptions of (1) the PA individual motivational determinants, (2) the importance of promoting PA and (3) their actions related to people’s PA promotion. Results show that physiotherapists are aware of their crucial role in PA promotion. Nevertheless, their actions should be more devoted to the prevention and detection of sedentary behaviours. Moreover, connections with other actors of PA promotion should be emphasized in order to respect the principles of an ecological approach.
