We all know that physiotherapists deal with various kinds of pains pertaining to the skeletal and muscuskelatal system. In fact, we are often advised by doctors to consult a physiotherapist whenever we get some kind of joint pain or back ache. But we rarely do so it is because the physiotherapy treatments are usually much more expensive and also we usually opt for quick relief treatments(such as painkillers and balms) over prolonged laborious ones. Despite this lot of doctors these days actually convince the patient to consult a physiotherapist this is done mainly for 2 reasons. The first one being sometimes the patient might be suffering from a very serious condition that cannot be treated through medication. And the other being the doctors want physiotherapy to be more mainstream and hence are encouraging their patients to try out physiotherapy.
Physiotherapy also has an amazing record of success, in a lot of cases even more so than general physicians. Nowadays because of many doctors recommending physiotherapy to a lot of patients physiotherapy is slowly becoming more and more popular, but its still a slow process. The Indian government must initiate a drive to promote physiotherapy among Indians. A drive like this was actually conducted in the UK. In fact, the Queen of England had even awarded 4 physiotherapists from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists of the UK for their contribution to the world of physiotherapy. Physiotherapists nowadays in India have all the latest equipment required as any other physiotherapist in the overseas. There are many physiotherapist clinics in India that are highly reputed, they have even recorded outstanding customer satisfaction. Physiotherapy also has amazing job prospects. A high salary starting from around 15,000 is usually paid to physiotherapists. Let us all hope that in the near future physiotherapy gets the attention and acclaim that it deserves and we get to see more physiotherapy clinics around us just like we see general physicians.
