Physiotheraphy Career: Course details,Top colleges, Future prospects and Job scopes

By Snehalata Sahu

Physiotherapy is one of the ancient sciences of curing the people by doing some physical practices. In this sort of medical science, it is used to treat back and neck pains, and certain orthopedic and neurological problems. A Physiotherapist helps patients to regain through proper physical movement with the help of massages, exercises and a combination of therapies using heat, wax and electricity. 



With increasing of stress and sedentary jobs in today’s common lifestyle, the need for physiotherapists and the resulting job prospects have been increased markedly. But unfortunately in India, still very few people are aware about the field of Physiotherapy and don’t get much information about the career prospects of it. So, in our country, there is a huge gap between the demand and the supply of Physiotherapists. In my point of view, making a career in Physiotherapy is the wisest decision as it can be successful in opening up many vistas and provide good job opportunities.

If you want to continue your Bachelor’s in Physiotherapy, then you must have physics, chemistry, and biology with math as optional in your +2 levels. To complete this degree you need to take 4 or 4.5 years on an average and to go for further study or complete M.Sc. in Physiotherapy, a B.Sc. degree or any BioScience subject is required. There are also institutions in India that offer Ph.D. programs in Physiotherapy.
