It gives me sheer delight to present March’22 Edition of PHYSIOTIMES as we enter a new world of possibilities. The year started on a positive note and now we are ready to celebrate the festival of colours.
Also, it’s the time to appreciate and acknowledge the role of women in every field. Physiotherapy is one such field where we see dominance of women in academics as well as clinicals. Right from nurturing young talents to doing long shifts in icu, there are consistent efforts from female physios without excuses.
THIS EDITION covers the journey and experiences of an eminent cricket player sujit nayak. Also, we have diverse articles, ‘Dietary recommendations for Physiotherapists to advise diabetic Patients’, ‘Incontinence & falls’, ‘Rebozo shifting’, ‘Restless legs syndrome’, ‘Correcting upper crossed syndrome in smart phone users’, ‘ Dorso-lumbar trauma’ and ‘Cuboid syndrome: An overlooked cause of foot pain’.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Pradeep Karambelkar sir for his guidance and support. A sincere thanks to all the physiotherapy colleges for coming forward for subscription as a result we could enrol more than 100 physiotherapy colleges in such a short span.
This month we have celebrated International Women’s Day and I am very glad and happy that our Editor Mrs Anubha was facilitated on various platforms.
Now the time has come where we need to come out from the word Empowerment or empowering women and replace it with “co operation” . We as society, adopt the collaborative approach towards Females.
I am aware and happy that in Physiotherphy world, now females are coming out from home remedies to professional physio help. That’s a positive sign as woman is the base of a family and her health must be taken seriously.
Also, I can see the welcome change in physiotherphy industry where more and more young females are opting it as profession.
Overall, we are marching towards a collaborative, cooperative society so that we can build a stronger society and nation.
