Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, video consultation by physiotherapists can be useful in situations like Turkiye earthquake. He was addressing the 60th National Conference of the Indian Association of Physiotherapists (IAP) in Ahmedabad via a video message today, February 11.
Mr. Modi urged the profession to develop ways of video consulting and tele-medicine. He said this can be useful in situations like the earthquake in Turkiye where a large number of physiotherapists are needed and Indian physiotherapists can help via mobile phones and asked the Physiotherapist Association to think in this direction. “I have full faith that under the leadership of experts like you, India will be fit as well as a super hit”, lauded the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister acknowledged the importance of physiotherapists as providers of solace, symbol of hope, resilience and recovery. A physiotherapist, he said, not only treats physical injury but gives the patient courage to deal with the psychological challenge.
