Rehab Train to open new opportunities for Physiotherapists

Rehabtrain at Gurgaon

Rehab Train which will be the first comprehensive Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Centre will open new avenues for the physical therapists said Dr Jyoti Arya - Country Head for the centre in an interview with Nazneen Saifi

Every year almost 17000 physiotherapists graduate from various colleges in India. The discipline of Rehabilitation and physical therapy has not achieved its full potential and therefore a large number of these therapists find it extremely difficult to get gainful employment. A quick look at the physical therapy departments of large tertiary care hospitals is enough to give you a fair idea about this fact. A 500 bedded hospital does not recruit even 5 physical therapists. On the other hand we see that the physical trainers in the gymnasiums have little knowledge of the human body and the musculo-skeletal system.
