1. Bachelor of Science (Hons.) Physiotherapy

Physical therapy or physiotherapy is a branch of rehabilitative medicine aimed at helping patients maintain, recover, or improve their physical abilities. Physical therapists or physiotherapists work with patients whose movements may be undermined by aging, disease, environmental factors, or sporting hazards. Physical therapy also means the treatment of any pain, disease, or injury by physical means. The profession concerned with promotion of health, with prevention of physical disabilities, with evaluation and rehabilitation of persons disabled by pain, disease, or injury, and with treatment by physical therapeutic measures as opposed to medical, surgical, or radiologic measures.

A physical therapist seeks to identify and maximize quality of life and movement potential through prevention, intervention (treatment), promotion, habilitation, and rehabilitation. Habilitation means making somebody fit or capable of doing something. Rehabilitation means making somebody fit or capable of doing something they can no longer do properly or at all, but used to be able to – i.e., restoring ability or abilities. Promotion means the process of enabling people to increase control over and improve their health. Physical therapy is not alternative therapy. It is a clinical health science. Physical therapists’ study medical science subjects, including anatomy, neuroscience, and physiology to acquire the health education needed for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, etc., of patients with physical problems. A qualified physical therapist is an expert in the examination and treatment of people with cardiothoracic, musculoskeletal, and neuromuscular diseases; focusing on conditions and problems that undermine patients’ abilities to move and function effectively. This encompasses physical, psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing. Physical therapy involves the interaction between physical therapist, patients/clients, other health professionals, families, care givers, and communities in a process where movement potential is assessed and diagnosed, goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to physical therapists.
