       Pin It       tellafriend        

Employment opportunities for physiotherapists are tremendous as it is a career where the demand exceeds supply. A physiotherapist could be employed in the rehabilitation departments, municipal corporations and private bodies. Their demand in medical institutions is increasing since physiotherapy plays an important role in the treatment of patients with muscular and cerebral problems. Like all other medical and paramedical professionals, physiotherapists can work in hospitals, orthopaedic departments, rehabilitation centres for the handicapped, schools for the mentally retarded and physically disabled children, health institutions and defense medical establishments. Physiotherapists can also opt for teaching, while those with adequate capital can establish private clinics of their own.

The demand for physiotherapists in the country as well as abroad is immense. They are in great demand in  USA, Canada and Australia.


The initial remuneration of physiotherapists in government hospitals varies between Rs. 5000 to 7000. But the private hospitals offer a relatively better package. Most well-run private hospitals offer a starting salary around Rs 9,500 which could go up to Rs 12,000 per month. The remuneration for established private practitioners can be almost Rs 20,000 to 40,000 per month.

Some hospitals also pay the physiotherapists according to the number of patients he/she sees. Most physiotherapists, after gaining an experience of around five years, could start their own practices, in which case, they charge according to the number of hours given to individual patients, usually around Rs. 500 to 800 per sitting.
