examples of how psychology and physiotherapy are associated 1 A 9 year old boy enters a physiotherapy clinic for fracture of upper limb holding hand of his mother sees the physio therapy work going on immediately leaves mother s hand and runs away 2 A young adult referred to physiotherapy for traumatic paraplegia while talking to physiotherapist he suddenly starts crying saying that he is now a useless person 3 A middle aged female attends physiotherapy clinic for osteoporosis and osteoarthritis of knee walking with great difficulty sighs and blames her sons and daughters in law for not helping her in her illness 4 An 80 year old man recovering for implanted prosthesis of femur head is not walking despite all other factors being normal These are day to day affairs such examples can be numerous All ill patients entering physiotherapist s chamber need psychological care a few for removing fear about its future complications few for getting confidence and a few for getting help in adjustment to new way of lifestyle living and working Not only that a few patients have to be prepared psycho logically for constant physiotherapy sometimes to prepare them for a treatment not only to improve but also to prevent deterioration Unfortunately most of the physiotherapists concentrate on mechanical means of physiotherapy and the psychological aspect is not touched at all viii Psychology for Physiotherapists Students learn psychology as first year subject and forget They should know that this is the base on which they have to stand This neglected but very important subject is well elaborated by Dr Thangamani Ramalingam A and Dr Dibyendunarayan Bid in this book I congratulate them for the same I feel not only students but also practicing physio therapists should read this book and incorporate it in their daily practice MT Rangwala MD Honorary Director The Sarvajanik College of Physiotherapy Rampura Surat 395 003 Gujarat India Preface With our one decade of teaching experience we have written this book to relieve the physiotherapy students from the anxiety to take down notes This book is an attempt to make the subject of psychology easy and comprehensible to physio therapy students Psychology as a scientific subject has got more numbers of books that discuss and explain the concept in a stretched way which make the reading time lengthier Moreover as the subject has got many branches and books collecting the information and material needed for the students according to their syllabus is very difficult Because of this problem we have tried to favour students in this regard in our book There was not a single book on psychology written by physiotherapists for physiotherapy students This book is a sincere attempt to fill that gap and help students and teachers alike In our book we have expressed the value of the psychology subject in physiotherapy field by giving a separate chapter Psychology in Physiotherapy
