In conversation with Differently-abled Indian Arm Wrestler

Dear Readers,

Creativity’ is the soul of every profession. Imagine doing the same thing over and over again without adding that pinch of creativity to your work. Physiotherapy is one of the most creative fields as we, as Physios design the treatment program based on the fact that exercises alone can be monotonous, making it enjoyable is our task.

We, at PHYSIOTIMES try to be our creative best while scrutinizing and designing the editions. Rather than making it theme-based, we like to cater to a variety. Rightly said, learning never stops.

brings a collection of articles from national and Inter-national authors along with conversation with Para-athlete Shrimant Jha. Treasures of this edition include – DIGITAL THERAPEUTICS, AN OVERVIEW ON DIABETIC NEUROPATHY & PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC APPROACH TO BALANCE & MOBILITY, EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION FOR PATIENTS WITH POST COVID COMPLICATIONS, ON-FIELD PHYSIOTHERAPISTS IN MODERN TIMES, UNDERSTANDING THE PERSON BEHIND DEMENTIA &                                         .

Physiotherapy is evolving everyday, so it becomes all the more important to update yourself with the latest trends in the world. PHYSIOTIMES believes that learning has no boundaries.

I’m immensely thankful to all our Authors, Nationally and Internationally for being a part of PHYSIOTIMES family and highly appreciating each other’s efforts.

Not to forget, Physiotherapy Fraternity has always been united for the growth and development of the profession. My sincere thanks to Mr. Pradeep Karambelkar, Director, PHYSIOTIMES for his support and guidance.
