Honl. Prime Minster of India in 2005)"
(Reference: Page 84 and 85 –Eleventh Five year Plan (2007-2012)-Volume II-Planning Commission of India)
Clause 9.47 “The Committee also takes note of the fact as mentioned by the representative of the Ministry that in USA, physiotherapy profession has reached a stage where these professionals can practise independently. Not only this, in some of the international Acts, it has been specifically provided that physiotherapists having the required experience can give physiotherapy treatment without a referral. These Acts also confer upon a physiotherapist the right to practise with or without referral governed by the circumstances of the case.”
The findings and documentation of this committee are in favour strong of an independent status and council for Physiotherapists.
(Reference: http://www.msotptcouncil.com/OTPTActs.aspx )
"Physiotherapists assess, plan and implement rehabilitative programs that improve or restore human motor functions, maximize movement ability, relieve pain syndromes, and treat or prevent physical challenges associated with injuries, diseases and other impairments. They apply a broad range of physical therapies and techniques such as movement, ultrasound, heating, laser and other techniques. They may develop and implement programmes for screening and prevention of common physical ailments and disorders"
Thanking you in advance.
