Difference between a Chartered Physiotherapist and a Physiotherapist

Chartered Physiotherapists are the ones who have achieved a university degree or has completed a Master’s program, with hospital-based training experience in different departments of hospital setup and have gained experience by being exposed to different Medical cases. They have comprehensive knowledge of how the body works, along with specialist training in the diagnosis and treatment of muscle and joint pain. The term ‘ chartered’ is a guarantee that they have been trained to the highest academic and professional standards and has have gained quite an experience in their practice with the span of time – and also that they continue to keep abreast of emerging trends and developments through programs of Continuous Medical Education/ Continuous Professional Development. This is how they develop themselves to stand 2 steps ahead and at this stage their dedicated nature differentiates them from a non-Chartered Physiotherapist.

After completing University level Studies and acquiring experience by being in practice is most valuable asset a Physiotherapist/ Physical Therapist have. The Qualified and Experienced physiotherapist will always be more accurate in healing the patient then a non qualified and non experienced physio and this thing todays’ Patients know very clearly. The Chartered Physiotherapists are always considered and preferred up on standard Physios because the status of Chartered gives the Patient surety and a peace of mind that their Therapist is an experienced one and they can rely on him/ her with confidence.

This fashion is well followed by some developed countries and is been adopted by Indian Asia.

There are only three Associations recognized worldwide working for Chartered Physiotherapists- UK’s Chartered Society, Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists & Indian Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

Through this membership, Physios have certified their genuine qualification and gained experience and are committed to provide high-quality services and protecting the quality of physical treatments.
