Bachelor of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is one of the most ancient sciences that helps restore functional movements of our body. Impairment of body due to accidents, impacts or diseases like polio require a physiotherapist to have an extensive knowledge of different functions and anatomy of human body. In fact, it is such a vast discipline that we have separate specialization in the field of pediatrics, orthopedics, and sports physical therapy. These courses are now in high demand. The practice of physiotherapy is very old and has been prevalent from around 450 BC.

Physiotherapy can also be taken as a parallel course with popular courses like BDS and MBBS. There are various therapies which are practiced and taught as part of the wider physiotherapy curriculum such as manual therapies, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, ultrasound technology, electrical muscle stimulation, manipulation and acupuncture etc.
