Hi guys, even m a student of physiotherapy.. i think every health professional should work as a team rather than demoralising each other.. and our physios are not calling themselves as doctors. its the patients who call them doctors....

ALL I KNOW IS THAT,THE SO CALLED MBBS 'DOCTORS' DONT GET A RATS ASS CHANCE TO WORK IN A COUNTRY LIKE CANADA IF THEY HAVE RECEIVED THEIR DEGREE'S FROM INDIA.GUESS THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED ENOUGH,,,HUH..
BUT PHYSIOTHERAPIST'S ARE IN THE SKILLED WORKERS LIST FOR CANADA,AUSTRALIA,NEWZEALAND,ET C,ETC,ETC..
SO I GUESS DEVELOPED COUNTRIES FIND THEM MORE QUALIFIED THAN OUR HIGHLY EDUCATED DOCTORS(MBBS)...BRAVO..THREE CHEERS TO THAT..
ALSO I AM A CUSTOM BIKE BUILDER..NOT A DR. OR A PHYSIOTHERAPIST....CHEERS TO THAT TOO....

actually there is problem related with the standards of medical fields....only a dr prefixed man is responsible to overcome from the respected disease...either it may be of surgical method or a physical therapeutic dosage....definately physio's has the right to prefixed as doctor....because they deals with orhopaedic and several; diagnosis..with certain assessments method......yes physiotherapist is a doctors.....jai hind

Neither mbbs ppl hv rights nor physios hv to decide wether physios can use a prfix dr. Or not.... v hv our courts to decide dis...apart if u hv luk on most of the coments ovr here ul find atleast physios hv mostly given a sensible justifications of der opinion on calng demselves dr. Bt mbbs ppl who deny physio as a dr are nt hvng any logical or sensible justification on y dey r syng so... rathr deyr simply gvng judgemnt dt physios r nt dr.,, none of dem hv ansrd on questions lik y mbbs write dr. Wen dey r nt alwd to?? Y bhms practice allopathy wen pharmacology was nt in der sylabus??? Why physios can't write dr. If mbbs bhms bams bds bums all can write?? Gv a proper explaination of our opinion,, dont jus shw ur wish dt physios r nt dr. Bcz u dnt think so ... soon our courts wil decide

It will b better if our court pass an order dt none of d graduates (b it mbbs bds bhms bams bums bpt) can use prefix dr. Only aftr masters or phd (wtevr court finds apropriate) dey can use d prefix. And neither anyone wil practice or dictate othrs profesion , neither physios will prescribe medicines nor a physician shud dictate exercise or elctro modality .... both shud genuinely reffer d case to echothr as per d need nd benefit of patient.. and instead of fighting ovr d title v shud concentrate on fair nd ethical practice.... if sm1 is practicing wt he is nt alwd to dt shud b cause to opose nd argue , not dis dt who cn use d prfix .
