Preamble | Bachelor of Physiotherapy
Our modern lifestyle – with all its perks and benefits – has started to take a toll on our bodies. Back pain, knee pain, and neck strains have become everyday problems.
Physiotherapy is one of the popular courses in modern medicine worldwide, which views human movements as central to the health and well being of individuals. Physiotherapists are trained professionals who help their injured patients get back to the highest possible range of movement. In addition to their role in maintenance and restoration of physical function& health, Physiotherapists are also responsible for the promotion of health, lifestyle, quality of life and prevention of physical dysfunction and disability
This holistic approach incorporates a broad range of physical and physiological therapeutic interventions and aids
The core skills used by Physiotherapy include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and the application of electrotherapeutic modalities. Specifically, physiotherapists improve the client’s quality of life by:
Students studying Physiotherapy learn about the basic sciences such as Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, etc as well as Clinical Sciences such as the Orthopedics, General Surgery, and General Medicine etc. They learn to diagnose patients based on observations and taking personal histories. They also study how to collaborate with patients and family members to determine a plan of care that will be effective for all concerned.
In addition to clinical practice, other activities encompassed in the physical therapy profession include research, education, consultation, and administration. At present, in our country, very few Universities are generating Health professionals specialized in Physiotherapy.
The Bachelor of Physiotherapy (BPT) programme introduced by SGT University promises to generate professionals having extensive and elaborated knowledge in the field of Physiotherapy.
At SGT University Practical training to students is imparted at state of the art Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation center where students get hands-on training under the expert faculty of 665 bedded multi-disciplinary SGT Hospital which is located within the premises of SGT University. Students expand their horizons of therapeutic and rehabilitative concepts through involvement in community-based rehabilitation programs and other “outreach” programs. Thus the students have the advantage of excellent clinical training, besides the highest level of academic activity which bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and its practical application.
The overall goal of the BPT Program is to prepare students to practice state of the art Physiotherapy. The educational goals of the curriculum reflect the knowledge, skills, and behaviors expected of program graduates.
