According to World Health Organization (WHO) and World Confederation of Physical Therapist (WCPT), Physiotherapists are independent practitioners providing services that develop, maintain and restore people’s maximum movement and functional ability. Physiotherapist help people at any stage of life, when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors.
Physical therapy is an expanding field with a good job market both in India and abroad. Selection into the program is competitive. From the origin as a diploma program, it has moved to a degree program. Masters and Doctoral programs are available in a few Institutions in India.
