Dear Readers,

July’22 marks 13th Birthday of PHYSIOTIMES- India’s first and leading physiotherapy magazine. 
 We are glad to share that we have been connecting Physiotherapy Community across the globe since 2009 and continue to do so.

We believe that the upcoming Physios need to get the right inspiration and motivation while they are being groomed and that’s the reason, we at PHYSIOTIMES, promote Physiotherapy Colleges across India to subscribe. 

Delighted and humbled, it gives me real happiness to share that more than 85 prestigious universities, colleges and libraries have been a part of 
physiotimes family.

From including articles on an umbrella of topics, from none other than renowned national and international authors/ physios to discussing the role physiotherapy played in the career of our proud Olympians to reaching out to Physios from Kashmir to kanya-kumari, physiotimes has joined the dots representing one big physiotherapy community.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of one and all. Proudly presenting in this edition- conversation with Deepak punia- the formidable fighter. To keep you updated with the latest in physiotherapy, we have ‘Robotics in Rehabilitation’ ,  ‘ Is Aquatic Therapy safe in covid-19 pandemic’, ‘ Women Health Physiotherapy- A lot more to explore’, ‘TMD- A bermuda triangle of medical conditions’ ‘Language matters a lot- choose appropriately’, ‘Central sensitization 
In chronic low back pain’.

Last but not the least, thanking honorable Director physiotimes, Mr. PRADEEP KARAMBELKAR SIR, all our esteemed authors, all our readers to the undying support that has helped us come so far. 


The woods are lovely, 
dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
