"Physiotherapy is noble profession, a physiotherapists under goes 4 years of theory and 6 months of internship program approved by UGC, further more there is specialization in Physiotherapy MPT which is also approved by UGC and also Doctorate in Physiotherapy which is also approved by UGC".

World Health Organization (WHO) has classified Physiotherapy as an Independent Practice and out of Paramedical stream

http://www.who.int/hrh/statistics/Health_workers_classification.pdf

According to this code Physiotherapy is classified into a seperate entity and not clubbed with Paramedical services.

Definition:-

"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"

The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the international organization responsible for drawing up and overseeing international labour standards. It is the only 'tripartite' United Nations agency that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting Decent Work for all.

Now that WHO has classified Physiotherapists as an individual professionals, we all need to work on this to get the same status in India.

In India few state governments have Physiotherapy Council and given Independent status to physiotherapists.

Its a request to Health Ministry and Govt of India to take matter into consideration for the formation of Independent Physiotherapy Council.

We Want Justice.

Thanks
