Seems like u are trying to prove ur profession noble
Let me tell u, u can also kill patients I the ot out of sheer ignorance and say the patient was dead on the table
Also u just right the cure for heart attack n ask the nurses to do the needed,
So all in all you all r clerks who do a lot of scribbling on the case sheets, who do not remember the spellings of the drugs and a god complex for no reason

F/o if you think so.Talk to a leading neurologist or paediatrician or ortho surgeon that whether physios treat cases or just give instruction quoting you.I wish your father gets paralysed & u go to neuro then if you go to physio some physio should pee on ur face.

hi all. i am also a physiotherapist .i think it is controversial. the government should clearly define the field of doctor and physiotherapist . now , i think , it is intricated. crossing each others boundary will lead to necrosis of each others profession.
kindly tel me what is supreme court stand regarding this! if anybody knows. send me. thank you.

guys. MBBS AND PT departments are inter dependant. so. each must respect others profession. every one is important. ok i accept that we, physiotherapist cannot prescribe medicines, cannot attend emergency cases. like us , ayush doctors are also not attending emergency cases. i don't think any sidda doctor does surgery .
let me ask a question. can anyone give authenticated definition of doctor , physician.
both MBBS and physios diagnose tin condition and both treat in their respective ways. MBBS mainly concerned with primary and secondary prevention. physiotherapist mainly concerned with secondary and tertiary prevention. both are complementary to each other. without one others task is incomplete. in medical profession a pharmacist cannot do lab technician work . same way others .
i think, why this problem surfaced means , there is no clear cut domain for physiotherapy.
i accept that the domain for MBBS is more than physiotherapy, i can't accept physiotherapy's independence in its domain .
if we are technicians as one person posted here, nearly 5 years of curriculum is not needed.
government of India must come out. with concrete decision.
so friends, lets work out for proper curriculum and authority first..

someone commented in the previous pages saying that only MBBS graduates use the prefix Dr and someone else said that Indian Physios are foolish to call themselves Dr.
I personally feel those who feel this are fools, not we. Doctor mean 'teacher' and the MBBS kids have no rights to be the sole teachers.its not out fault if you have poor english vocab and u dont understand words like Doctor and what they actually mean.
this is not a question about who is better, MBBS or physios..... that is such a cheap and stupid comparison. both professions are important in their own way.
if the MBBS students call us non-doctors, that shows that they are fickle minded to not adapt to upcoming knowledge. looks like they wanna stick to the ancient methods of treatment.
Grow up u kids! accept the new and dont compare everything to ur profession. Your profession is not a gold standard.
if u cant accept us as doctors it only proves that u are scared!
stop comparing u kids! both professions are diff. we cant do what an MBBS does and i bet the MBBS cant do what we do.

Physiotherapist is not a doctor. it's a instructor to instruct your body how to manage. it's provide manually massage therapy. The physiotherapist not delivered medicines to reduce your disease.It's provide physical body exercise.

I think that a PT cant write medicines to their patients while a mbbs can do this. This makes the difference. I dont want to hurt any one here. I am a businessman. So all mbbs and pt graduates can put me out of all this.
Thanks
