Physiotherapy: Form of Modern Medicine
Dr. Amber Anand (P.T)
What is physiotherapy? A lot of people ask me what is physiotherapy; this is quite
fascinating thing for them as many of them still don’t know anything about it. So
I tell them that Physiotherapy or Physical Therapy is a health care profession primarily
concerned with the remediation of impairment and disabilities and promoting mobility,
functional ability and quality of life through the tools available to them i.e. physical
examination that includes manual muscle testing, goniometry, observation and physical
assessment that includes special physical examination tests; evaluation of the patient’s
condition and finally coming to a definite diagnosis. And as per their diagnosis
they plan the treatment protocol, whatever is best for the patient.
Physiotherapy is carried out by specially trained therapists known as ‘Physiotherapists’
or ‘Physical Therapists’ as called in western world. According to World Health Organization,
Physiotherapy or Physical Therapy is considered as one of the toughest medical courses
in the world. The World Physiotherapy Day is observed on 8th September every year
throughout world to spread the awareness about Physiotherapy and make people realize
the importance of Physiotherapy in today’s world.
The role of a Physiotherapist is to facilitate optimum functional independence, health
and well being of the individual. This is achieved by specialised manual therapy
techniques, electrotherapeutic modalities, exercises, advices and counselling of
patient and their care givers, along with the provision of adaptive devices and mobility
aids education and training. Apart from that, the therapist may also emphasis on
Physiotherapy involves interactions between therapists, doctors and other concerned
health care professionals like surgeons, psychologist, neurologist, speech therapist,
occupational therapists and many others; family members, care givers and the community
in a process where patient’s potential is assessed, diagnosed and goals are agreed
Who does Physiotherapists treat?
The physiotherapist on the basis of the patient’s complaints, history, physical assessment,
observation and investigation; diagnoses and treats individuals of any age from new
born to the eldest who have medical problems & other health related conditions, illness
or injuries that limits their ability to move and perform functional activities and
the activities of their daily living (ADLs).
How does Physiotherapists treat?
First of all the Physiotherapist takes a complete assessment of the patient’s condition,
including history of his illness, when and how it started whether he has taken any
treatment or not for the ailment, followed by physical examination and special physical
tests, reviewing and advising radiological examination (X-ray, CT Scan, MRI, etc.)
if needed; to arrive at a definite diagnosis.
And accordingly the therapist sets the treatment goal and the physiotherapy interventions
needed for the patient and explains the same to the patient and their care givers.
Physiotherapy management generally includes prescription with specific exercises,
manual therapy techniques, manipulation, electrotherapeutic modalities, patient and
care giver education of do’s & don’ts and other interventions.
Physiotherapy as a Profession & Where do they work?
Physiotherapy like any other profession has many branches including Sports, Orthopaedics,
Neurology, Cardiology, Cardio-Pulmonary, Geriatric, Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Community
Based Rehabilitation etc
Physiotherapists practices in various kinds of settings such as Out Patient Department,
In Patient Department, Private Clinics, Health & Wellness Centre, Rehabilitation
Facilities, Nursing Homes, Education and Research Centre, Schools for children with
special needs, Sports Training Facilities, etc.
What Physiotherapy can do?
Regular physiotherapy can prevent various cardiac orthopaedic, neurological & muscular
disorders. It helps even in reducing weight and gives relives from stress. Physiotherapy
plays a crucial role in pre & post operative management of orthopaedic, neurological
& cardiac patients. Physiotherapy can recover you from stroke, head injury or Spinal
Cord Injury and makes you able to perform your activities of daily living and makes
you functionally independent when all other therapies have failed. Recovering from
stroke, head injury or Spinal Cord Injury is quite lengthy process; it may take even
months, depending upon severity, location and age. Yes, age; recovery is faster in
younger patients, but due to lack of awareness, patients are neglecting physiotherapy
which is not giving expected result following surgeries. In modern health care scenario
Physiotherapy is the backbone of any surgery. Talking about paediatric conditions,
such as CP, Autism, Delayed Milestones, Spine Bifida etc. physiotherapy remains the
main stay of treatment.
Taking about sports, now a day as we could see there is a lot of development in the
field of sports. A large number of youths are participating in sports & taking it
as a concern with the recent advancement in the field of sports, thee need of proper
training is felt. Today in India most of the team be it cricket, football, hockey,

huge risk on safety and security of the nation. India spends around Rs 3 lakh crore
every year on defending its borders and most of the equipments are imported. Countries
like Israel, USA and Russia are the major exporter of weapon to India. Situation
is so bad that today Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar called for "self dependence"
and emphasized on the need for indigenous efforts with regards to ammunition supply
in order to meet any eventuality. India which is surrounded by hostile countries
like Pakistan and China cannot afford to totally depend on imported defense equipments
to safeguard its border.
Unfortunately, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) which was set
up with a vision to provide our defence services a decisive edge by equipping them
with internationally competitive systems and solutions has miserably failed to perform
their duty. The DRDO has clearly failed in its mission. There is no bigger indictment
of India's premier organisation for research and development in military hardware
than the fact that 68 years after its establishment, India still imports 70 per cent
of its defence equipment requirements. DRDO's list of successes is short-primarily
the Agni and Prithvi missiles. Its list of failures is much longer. The Light Combat
Aircraft (LCA) project, which was commissioned in 2001, is running late by many years.
The costs have gone up from an original estimate of around Rs 3,300 crore to over
Rs 5,780 crore. In May this year, Comptroller and Auditor General said that the
Mark-I version of Tejas LCA has several shortcomings and does not meet IAF specifications.
In 2011, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) put a serious question mark on
drdo's capabilities. The government of India should overhaul DRDO and take urgent
steps to make it more efficient.

Appreciation for central ANYA team
Through your esteemed daily, I on behalf of family of the victim would like to appreciate
the noble job done by the Central ANYA team who visited the family of murdered Late
Kenpu Dong during their darkest hours. The entire area was afraid due to possible
The victims’ family was encouraged in their hours of need due to intervention of
ANYA team who advised everyone not to give any communal colour to the matter.
ANYA team also took the ground details of the case and appealed the entire people
to maintain harmony among the neighbours. And they appealed the entire public to
let the law take its own course of action to give justice to the deceased’s family.
They also appealed the concern authority to investigate the case in free and fair
manner to find out the culprits who were involved in her death.
ANYA team also took stock of the law and order situation of the District and encouraged
the people of concern area to live together for the development of the district.
Fighting with each other won’t give any benefit to anyone and it only brings destruction.
These noble jobs done by ANYA team will always remain in heart of every Nyishi citizen
of Upper Subansiri District.
Sangh and the PM
We all know that PM Modi is going global. No doubt he is popular leader in the world.
He is quite conscious of his growing popularity. He is working much harder to gain
more popularity. He wants to make India a developed nation irrespective of religious,
caste, creeds though he was once a member of RSS. He is honest and wants to keep
himself free from corruption. His council of ministers is following him anyway. Nation
cannot expect more than this.
However, the Sangh Parivar’s growing dominant role with its hidden agenda is certain
to upset the nation.
No doubt after he elected as PM of India, Modi wants to divert his attention from
Sangh agenda and keep more focus on national issues which the Parivar finds it hard
That is why they asked the PM Modi and his council of ministers to present the performance
report to the Sangh.
The people of this country who voted the NDA to power would be compelled to think
again. The greatness of India is not because of Narendra Modi, not because of Sangh
Parivar or any other religious /social group. We all should know that the greatness
of India lies with its Secularism.
Limited options available for NDA as they have to decide whether to work towards
the national agenda or the hidden agenda of Sangh.
O mother !
Of great riches but a woman without virtues. This is how my observation permits me
to describe the femme fatale of Assam; Indrani Mukherjee. My heart drummed out of
control as I shrieked in disbelief, “What greediness does to some women. Her heart
and soul frozen around one frantic desire; money.” The ways to enrich oneself is
through infidelity and contrived murder, or so the recent turn of events have come
to unfold. A woman could have a mind so sly and crafty that years later she would
turn vicious against her own daughter is an astounding yet agitating emotion to believe.
As it is said ‘Envious eyes does most harm and when the party envied is beheld in
glory or triumph, that sets an edge upon envy.’ This particular phrase is difficult
to come to terms with when used in context of a mother seeking revenge against her
daughter. Indrani Mukherjee is a woman who desired to excel in too many matters,
out of levity and vain glory, which left are ever envious. Her envy towards Sheena
Bora was more vile and malignant since she had an injured pride to feed up.
My voice conveys just the right tinge of mild concern over such women and the disorder
they create in the society for a while. What corrupted soaring ambitions they nurture!
What an emancipation of women! Carrying the greatness of her fortunes accumulated
over the years through her associations with numerous suitors and enticed with the
opportunity of having a fanciful life, she let loose her wickedness to bring upon
the calamity on her family at the end. Like an infection that spreads upon viable
areas, her actions have tainted the pious concept of motherhood. And like bats amongst
birds she kept her vilest affections well guarded until she ran the sword through
her daughter’s heart!
Human nature is often hidden, sometimes overcome but seldom extinguished. His/ her
nature is best perceived in privateness for there are no precepts to guide him. Groans
and convulsions of a dying child couldn’t dissuade Indrani Mukherjee from committing
such a savage crime. What a brazen heart for a mother! Vindictive persons live the
life of witches who, as they are mischievous, end up being unfortunate. Her course
of life has been a horrid complication of wickedness, adultery, lying and murder.
A crime has been charged on her and the proof is so evident in Sheena’s letter (who
else would call her own mother a devil!) that there is no room for her so much as
to plead not guilty.
What an unapologetic tale of bigamy, betrayal and murder. It has left all of us in
a disturbed state of mind because the intensity of the truth is oppressive; a wife
and a mother, seeking redemption from the sufferings of her own child.
O mother! May your repentance yield you no satisfaction, no peace, no, not in the
least because it is repentance after the power of further sinning has been taken
away. Let your whole life be overwhelmed with melancholy and despair. May you engulf
in the misery of punishment. It is scarce possible to imagine that a mother’s essence
should be capable of so much degeneracy. The weight if guilt upon her is enough to
sink any creature who has the least power of reflection left. Indrani’s deed is
a stab into the very vitals of motherhood!
A self declared Banggo
This is in reference to the news items published in your esteemed daily on 06 Sept
under the title “villagers repair road”.
“Banggo” is an age old institution of the Adis. It executes various political, social
and economic under its jurisdiction. The so called Rayang Banggo” referred to in
your paper is a part and parcel of Yibuk-Rayang-Midland Banggo.
There are various laid down norms and procedure for the creation of a new Banggo
from its parents Banggo which have not been met by the so called Rayang Banggo. It
is a self declared Banggo without the sanction of the parent Banggo, ABK and even
the pubic residing in the village. It has been declared by a few elite minorities
to satisfy their vested political interest.
Samak River which should have been a boon for the villagers have become a bane for
the villagers. Some youths extort money from the truck carrying sand gravel to satisfy
their Alchol and drugs craving.
Hence, your esteemed daily should refrain from publishing any news item from this
self declared Banggo.
Your esteemed paper should verify facts and then publish it.
