Physiotherapy is a health science that deals specifically with disequilibrium that is related to the neuromusculoskeletal system and problems that arise thereof. The fundamental unit of physiotherapy treatment is ‘movement’ – at several levels - gross body level, specific muscle and joint level, and a molecular level.
Movement exercises used in rehabilitation involve processes that function at the level of nerves, muscles and joints, while the physical modalities used facilitate the body’s healing processes (electrical stimulation, sound waves, electromagnetic waves etc.) induce a movement at a molecular level. Regardless of the level, physiotherapy involves the energising of the body, mind and self and consequent holistic rehabilitation of the patient.
Physiotherapists are uniquely positioned as clinicians to manage problems arising from the disequilibrium and/or dysfunction of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Their training includes in-depth knowledge of the neuroscience of movement as well as the problems that arise from the pathogenesis of dyskinesia (abnormal movement) and pain.
Current models of physiotherapy education instil the importance of the scientific methodology of hypothesis testing and the fundamentals of evidence based practice in clinical practice. Towards this end there has been over the years a major thrust towards postgraduate education, research and the development of a scientific data base in physiotherapy and its related fields.
Physiotherapy as a profession in India and around the globe is still in its infancy. As its knowledge base increases, the role and scope of physiotherapy is going to expand across multiple specialities and sub-specialities – from traditional areas of orthopaedics & neurology to paediatrics & gerontology to burns & plastic surgery, and to cutting edge areas of stem cell therapy and organ transplants. Moreover, as access to healthcare increases the need for physiotherapists – both generalists and specialists is going to grow.
