Physiotherapy is a noble profession. I have always loved my profession and have devoted my life to it. I have often expressed my disappointment that people think of physiotherapy as just another massage rather than a procedure for curing complex problems. People have misconceiving ideas about physiotherapy and fail to understand the deep rooted links between physiotherapy and the diseases. It forms a bridge between medicines and cure. The city of joy has come a long way in bridging this gap where physiotherapy in Kolkata is being redefined and awareness being spread on the applications of it. Application of physiotherapy can happen in various disciplines like sports injuries, frozen shoulder, pre and post natal care, heart ailments, orthopaedic issues like osteoporosis, joint problems and many more. It is important to understand that physiotherapy is a process whose ultimate aim is to achieve mobility amongst the patients by curing them from the root issues.
As a disciple of the reverend Saint Mother Teresa, I remember her words when she said “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” I do feel that what I am doing today is just a drop in the ocean but if it heals the society by a drop, then let the awareness begin today.
