College of Physiotherapy
Physical therapists are integral members of the primary care team and are involved in prevention of disability and promotion of positive health, and acting as consultants in restorative care.
Physiotherapy or Physical Therapy is a movement science with an established theoretical and scientific base and widespread clinical applications in the Prevention, Restoration, Rehabilitation, Maintenance and Promotion of optimal physical function. It is a branch of modern medical science which involves examination, assessment, interpretation, physical diagnosis, planning and execution of treatment and advice to individuals. Physiotherapy aims at preventing, correcting, alleviating and limiting dysfunction, acute and chronic bodily malfunction including life saving measures. Treatment strategies ranges from chest physiotherapy in the intensive care unit to treatment of physical and psychological disorders, including, addressing physical disorders or disabilities, promoting physical fitness, facilitating healing and pain relief. Modulating psychological and physical response is achieved through physical agents, activities and devices including exercise, mobilization, manipulations, therapeutic ultrasound, electrical and thermal agents etc.
Physiotherapy professionals contribute to the society and the profession through practice, teaching, administration, research and application of new knowledge about physiotherapy experiences, skills, and behaviors as applied to the practice of physiotherapy. Physiotherapists are autonomous and compassionate professionals, who practice collaboratively in a variety of healthcare setups such as neonatal to geriatric, from critical care to community fitness to sports training. Emerging graduate and post graduate students are required to demonstrate a substantial knowledge base, possess skills related to physiotherapy practices, possess high emotional quotient to address family health and meet community responsibilities, demonstrate gender sensitivity and socio-culturally relevant competence.
