Interview with Bhaichung Bhutia



Dear Readers,

New Year Greetings!!!

It gives me immense pleasure to bring the first energetic issue of dynamic 2020 filled with knowledge, updates, motivation and much more. Time and again we believe that reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

In an exclusive interview with PHYSIOTIMES, the PADMA SHRI and ARJUNA AWARD recipient footballer tells about the journey of his career and the role of physiotherapy in the sport.

We are grateful to Mr. Miskaat Maimoon, who escaped the claws of death and continued his faith in Physiotherapy for 11 years for sharing his brave survival story. We will continue sharing such tales of real life warriors whose hard work and their Physiotherapist’s guidance changed their life forever.

It’s a pleasure to share brain-storming articles like latest approaches for encountering shoulder pain, What’s on your plate, latest Neurological Rehabilitation Tools and dynamic taping.

Insightful articles like funding in Physiotherapy and effects of Aerobic exercises on Immunity are thought-provoking.

From this premier issue, we are introducing a centre-fold informative page “road-map” to recovery. I hope that you find it useful.

We are glad to announce that the PHYSIOTIMES APP. has more than  1500 subscribers, thereby inculcating voracious reading habits in our Physiotherapy students. I thank all the prestigious colleges to take the initiative of introducing their students to quality reading.

I express my deep gratitude to Mr. Pradeep Karambelkar, Director, PHYSIOTIMES for trusting me with the editorial task. I thank all the authors who contributed their expertise in making this issue a power packed one and hope to continue it in future. I am especially thankful to Mr. Savneet Singh, our motivational writer for beautifully penning down our patient’s story “Miracles happen”.

I would like to thank all our valuable readers for trusting us with the best content. Last but not the least, I sincerely thank Anant Singh for giving his valuable inputs during the making of this issue.

Before I sign off, I wish you all love, health and positivity!


Happy 2020

Health & happiness always,

Anubha Singhai
