Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist ?
A physical therapist is the same as a physiotherapist. Most countries that have the British influence on education call physical therapy as physiotherapy and a physical therapist as a physiotherapist, just as soccer is being referred to as football.
A physical therapist is an allied healthcare worker that helps in the habilitation and rehabilitation of people with pain, injury or illness. The educational requirements perhaps vary from country to country. Here in the United States, in the earlier years, the initial entry-level physical therapy program led to a Bachelor’s degree, which then changed to a Master’s degree. In the last few years, this has become a four-year study that entails pre-requisites and is followed by a three-year physical therapy specific entry-level doctoral program. This culminates to earning a designate title as a doctor of physical therapy. This should however not be confused with a medical doctor who can diagnose and prescribe medicine. Following the completion of the entry-level doctoral program, a physical therapist may prefer to specialize in what he/she chooses to through various residency or fellowship programs. The various fields of specializations are: Orthopedics, Sports, Cardiopulmonary, Geriatrics, Electrophysiology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Oncology, Pelvic/Women’s health and Wound care management. Depending on the therapist’s interest, a physical therapist can choose to work in a hospital, outpatient clinic, rehabilitation center, acute care setting, home health, sports team or may be choose to teach in an academic setting or do research.
What does your physical therapist do?
First things first. As a physical therapist I want to ensure that you feel at home when you walk in through my doors. Your trust is important for the success of the physical therapy program tailored to your needs. Eventually I would like to maintain a good therapeutic alliance to ensure future service, if need be. Here is the typical approach:
- Listen to you carefully to find out what exactly is impacting your present condition.
- Provide comprehensive assessment using a biopsychosocial approach- physical, psychological and social/vocational components.
- Arrive at a hypothetical diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan based on the physician’s recommendation, if any.
- Provide treatment in a safe and effective manner utilizing hands-on approach/manual therapy, exercises and movement re-education. I may use E-stim and therapeutic ultrasound as an adjunct to facilitate the healing process.
- Communicate with your physician about the present progress and any changes in your condition.
- Ultimately the goal is to optimize movement, recover function and enhance performance to help you return safely to what you like doing.
