Scope in the field of physiotherapy is very large. It is estimated that about 10% of the population of the world is suffering from physical disability in one way or the other. In India, many people are becoming physically disabled because of ignorance of preventive therapy and lack of professionals like physiotherapists. Physiotherapy has major role in diagnosis, preventive and prognosis of many disorders like paralysis, orthopedic conditions, arthritis and joint diseases, cardio/respiratory disorders, electron physiological analysis from child hood to old age diseases. According to WHO’s norm, every 10,000 population may need at least one but according to one report, there are only about 5,000 physiotherapists in India. As there is a lot of brain drain from India in many popular sciences, physiotherapists is also have no exception. Most of the people qualified in India are leaving to foreign countries as there is very great demand in eastern and western countries.
