Scope of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a science that helps in prevention and alleviation of movement dysfunction in people. It helps patients regain or maximize physical movement and functions through exercises and/or therapies using agents such as heat, wax, and electricity.

In India, it is estimated that around two crores of the population are physically and neurologically handicapped. The number of qualified Physiotherapists is very low as compared to the handicapped population. This indicates the need of qualified Physiotherapist in the country as well as the wide prospects of the profession. Also, the government is expanding the rehabilitation services in the rural areas which increase the demand of Physiotherapist.
