Healthcare is a vast industry where aspirants make their careers in various domains. Candidates who want to rehabilitate patients by treating them with the help of exercises, massages, and physical activities can become Physiotherapists. Graduates from this course can prevent and cure physical dysfunctionalities in patients. Physiotherapy is considered the branch of healthcare that examines, diagnoses, treats, and instructs patients to improve their movement dysfunction, bodily malfunction, physical disorder, disability, healing & pain from trauma & disease, and physical & mental conditions. Physiotherapists utilize various physical agents, including exercise, mobilization, manipulation, mechanical, and electrotherapy devices, to treat patients. The high rise of industrialization and mechanization is the outcome of the high demand and scope of physiotherapy not only in India but also in abroad.
A Physiotherapist, also known as a Physical Therapist, is a vital part of the healthcare team responsible for treating patients without medicines by the use of exercise, manual therapy, rehabilitation techniques, and physical activity. The primary work of a physiotherapist is to help patients recover or rehabilitate from neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, sports, geriatrics, oncology impairments, and other incapable states. It is also a physical therapist’s responsibility to restore the patients’ body to its possible functional level.
Physiotherapists also play an essential role in preventing injuries that include on-field sores and treating them according to their needs. Also, it is the therapist’s responsibility to address not only the damage but also help patients control the impact of the injury to avoid future abnormalities.
