What is DPT and What Do Physiotherapist  Do?


DPT stands for Doctor of Physical Therapy. DPT is a five-year program in Pakistan.

Physiotherapy is a subfield of medicine and health sciences. It is concerned with the rehabilitation of those people who have been handicapped as a result of an accident, trauma, terrorist attack, operation, old age, congenital problem, etc.

A physiotherapist's work involves restoring normal muscle strength, muscle movement, improving the degree of joint mobilization, etc.

Besides, patient counseling is also an essential aspect. These patients usually suffer from depression and low self-esteem.

To restore their healthy body function, it is vital to motivate them and give them emotional support so that they feel confident enough about themselves.

A career in physiotherapy usually starts with F.Sc pre-medical. After that, you can either go for MBBS or Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

Students with qualities like empathy and concern for the poorly abled persons should opt this field as it suits their aptitude.

Interest in the physiology of the human body is also vital. Physiotherapists usually work in hospital settings or private clinics. They are also part of rehabilitation institutes.

Sometimes they are also employed by nursing homes and old homes.

What Are the Required Skills in Physiotherapy?


Interest in social work is vital for this field. Ability to rapidly build good repute with people is also necessary.

People who have a friendly demeanor and good socializing qualities are very suitable for this work. Sound knowledge in the field of biology and physiology is also required.

Physiotherapists have to work with people who are often uncooperative, so patience is a prerequisite.

Good coordination skills also come in handy because often physiotherapists are part of a large program involving physicians, surgeons, nursing staff, paramedics, etc.

  • Geriatric Physiotherapists : 

Their job involves working with people of old age. Old age predisposes a person to different ailments many of them related to bodily movements or lack of movement. For example, Parkinsons Disease involves unwanted movements which are often involuntary. Physiotherapists work with these patients to restore their healthy balance of movements.

  • Pediatric Physiotherapists:

Pediatric physiotherapists have a delicate job. They work with children suffering from congenital anomalies, for example, down syndrome, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, etc. Patients suffering from these conditions are unable to move like children of the same age group. They also work with children who have to undergo significant surgery after trauma.

  • Occupational Physiotherapists: 

Sometimes a person becomes unable to resume his or her job after an injury. This is a challenging situation as it deprives a whole family of the sole bread earner. Occupational physiotherapists work with these individuals to restore their normal movements so that they can resume their job.

For example, a driver who has suffered some injury of hand muscles has to undergo physiotherapy before he is able to work again.

  • Sports Physiotherapists: 

They work with athletes like cricketers, footballers, swimmers, runners, etc. who are suffering from some injury and therefore are unable to take part in concerned sports.
