AMAR JYOTI INSTITUTE OF PHYSIOTHERAPY

The Amar Jyoti Institute of Physiotherapy (affiliated to University of Delhi) conducts a 4 ½  year Bachelor of Physiotherapy program (Inclusive of six month Internship).The curriculum has been developed keeping in mind an ever increasing knowledge base that is anchored in scientific evidence . Teaching at the Institute is problem-based and our highly qualified and clinically oriented faculty uses a variety of contemporary pedagogic strategies that include a judicious mix of didactic and laboratory based instructional technique.    

In its overall mission to serve the health-care needs of the society the Amar Jyoti Institute of Physiotherapy has undertaken, as a first step, the education and training of Physiotherapy practitioners. The management and faculty of the Institute view physiotherapy as a profession, whose primary purpose is the promotion of human health and function through the application of scientific principles to prevent, identify, assess, correct or alleviate conditions that arise as a result of various pathologies and/or movement dysfunction.

 

The mission of the Amar Jyoti Institute of Physiotherapy is to: 

“Provide leadership, management skills and resources for the advancement of education, scholarship, public service, and the practice of Physiotherapy”. 

 

In an attempt to fulfil this mission the Institute has defined the following goals:  

  1. Structure an intellectual environment in which both students and faculty can learn, integrate and transmit knowledge.
  2. Build an environment that invites exploration of the teaching and learning process.
  3. Serve the educational and the service needs of the organization and the professional community at large.
  4. Enter the future with educational leadership that provides models of education that meet current and anticipated practice expectations

 

To achieve the above goals, the Bachelor of Physiotherapy curriculum has been designed to produce graduates who will: 

Manifest competence as a clinical practitioner: The graduate will be comfortable interpreting and implementing the elements of patient management.  

Demonstrate evidence-based practice: The graduate will be able to identify, select and apply appropriate research and pertinent information in the creation and implementation of physiotherapy interventions. 

Communicate effectively: The graduate will share information with other health-care providers and clients/patients. 

Develop a professional self-identity: The graduate will identify with and ascribe to the physiotherapy ethos and professional standards of the conduct of physiotherapists.  

The Institute views education as a preparation for a lifelong commitment to professional service. This professional preparation is based on a broad foundation of bio-behavioural sciences from which students develop the values and tools necessary to function in a complex and changing health care environment. The curriculum is designed to reflect both current trends and future needs. It prepares students to accept their multifaceted role as clinical practitioners, teachers, researchers, consultants and administrators. In addition, it prepares students not only for the current levels of practice but also enables them to adapt to future change. 

Physiotherapy 

Understanding Dysfunction: A Physiotherapy Perspective

In managing human disease and/or dysfunction – it is first important to understand that - it is as a result of a disequilibrium between the body, mind and the self (identity). These dimensions are inextricably meshed together in a non-orthogonal matrix - each strongly influencing the other - within the constraints of a dynamic framework of the physical and social environment that we exist in. Thus, in dealing comprehensively with disease/dysfunction and/or disability, the clinician needs to manage a multitude of factors. 

Importantly, interventions should be patient-centric. Each patient should be considered as unique and the treatment of their suffering (pain, dysfunction, disability etc.) should be contextualized to their environment, as well as address all three facets of the individual - the body, the mind, and the self.   

Physiotherapy is a health science that deals specifically with disequilibrium that is related to the neuromusculoskeletal system and problems that arise thereof. The fundamental unit of physiotherapy treatment is ‘movement’ – at several levels - gross body level, specific muscle and joint level, and a molecular level. 

Movement exercises used in rehabilitation involve processes that function at the level of nerves, muscles and joints, while the physical modalities used facilitate the body’s healing processes (electrical stimulation, sound waves, electromagnetic waves etc.) induce a movement at a molecular level. Regardless of the level, physiotherapy involves the energising of the body, mind and self and consequent holistic rehabilitation of the patient. 

Physiotherapists are uniquely positioned as clinicians to manage problems arising from the disequilibrium and/or dysfunction of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Their training includes in-depth knowledge of the neuroscience of movement as well as the problems that arise from the pathogenesis of dyskinesia (abnormal movement) and pain. 

Current models of physiotherapy education instil the importance of the scientific methodology of hypothesis testing and the fundamentals of evidence based practice in clinical practice. Towards this end there has been over the years a major thrust towards postgraduate education, research and the development of a scientific data base in physiotherapy and its related fields.

Physiotherapy as a profession in India and around the globe is still in its infancy. As its knowledge base increases, the role and scope of physiotherapy is going to expand across multiple specialities and sub-specialities – from traditional areas of orthopaedics & neurology to paediatrics & gerontology to burns & plastic surgery, and to cutting edge areas of stem cell therapy and organ transplants. Moreover, as access to healthcare increases the need for physiotherapists – both generalists and specialists is going to grow.
