i have noticed on thing and that is

MOST of these Physiotherapists are from either south indian state of KERALA or HINDI BELT. This proves that Physiotherapy is a lousy profession which requires no real intelligence. Physiotherapists are nothing but MASSAGE THERAPISTS.
Only 3rd class mediocre people become physiotherapists who touch feet of every other freaking guy. BTW I'm a microbiologist and a researcher. I know fact. I have two PhDs.

If physiotherapists don't regard MCI, then they should not work in Allopathic Hospitals as they regard it as different form of medicine.
