Heal­ing hands to the fore

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

PHYS­IO­THER­APY is a health­care pro­fes­sion pri­mar­ily con­cerned with the re­me­di­a­tion of im­pair­ments and dis­abil­i­ties and the pro­mo­tion of mo­bil­ity, func­tional abil­ity, qual­ity of life and move­ment po­ten­tial through ex­am­i­na­tion, eval­u­a­tion, di­ag­no­sis and phys­i­cal in­ter­ven­tion. It is car­ried out by phys­io­ther­a­pists.

In ad­di­tion to clin­i­cal prac­tice, other ac­tiv­i­ties en­com­passed in the phys­i­cal ther­apy pro­fes­sion in­clude re­search, education, con­sul­ta­tion and ad­min­is­tra­tion. In many set­tings, phys­i­cal ther­apy ser­vices may be pro­vided along­side other med­i­cal or re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ser­vices.

Phys­io­ther­a­pists ( PTs) are highly ed­u­cated, li­censed health care pro­fes­sion­als who can help pa­tients re­duce pain and im­prove or re­store mo­bil­ity – in many cases with­out ex­pen­sive surgery and of­ten re­duc­ing the need for long- term use of pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions and their side ef­fects. Phys­i­cal ther­a­pists can teach pa­tients how to pre­vent or man­age their con­di­tion so that they will achieve long- term health ben­e­fits.

PTs ex­am­ine each in­di­vid­ual and de­velop a plan, us­ing treat­ment tech­niques to pro­mote the abil­ity to move, re­duce pain, re­store func­tion and pre­vent dis­abil­ity. In ad­di­tion, PTs work with in­di­vid­u­als to pre­vent the loss of mo­bil­ity be­fore it oc­curs by de­vel­op­ing fit­ness – and well­ness- ori­ented pro­grammes for health­ier and more ac­tive life­styles.

Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege, PJ, es­tab­lished in 2002 as Lin­coln Col­lege ( LC), was awarded the Univer­sity Col­lege sta­tus in 2011.

Th­ese phys­io­ther­apy pro­grammes in Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege are MOHE and MQA ap­proved.

Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege pro­vides qual­ity education at af­ford­able cost with its best ser­vice.

The pro­fes­sors, as­sis­tant pro­fes­sors and lec­tur­ers in Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege are highly qual­i­fied and ex­pe­ri­enced in their spe­cial­ity of phys­io­ther­apy.

The class­rooms are very spa­cious and tidy, the li­brary is equipped with am­ble of books and jour­nals to re­fer and the ex­er­cise ther­apy, elec­trother­apy prac­ti­cal lab­o­ra­to­ries are fully equipped with ba­sic and ad­vanced equip­ments. Over­all, the learn­ing at­mos­phere cre­ated and pro­vided by Lin­coln Univer­sity Man­age­ment is pleas­ing and sooth­ing for the stu­dents to learn ef­fi­ciently and more in­ter­est­ingly.

Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing ( MoU) and Mem­o­ran­dum of Agree­ment ( MoA) with var­i­ous govern­ment and pri­vate hospi­tals, phys­io­ther­apy cen­tres, re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tres and med­i­cal clin­ics to pro­vide hands- on prac­ti­cal skills to the phys­io­ther­apy stu­dents to ob­serve, un­der­stand, im­ple­ment and prac­tise the knowl­edge learned.

Ex­cel­lence in pro­fes­sion and up­lift­ing the ca­reer growth of phys­io­ther­apy stu­dents in Malaysia is the ob­jec­tive of Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege and the man­age­ment is work­ing to­wards it.

Un­der Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege, the phys­io­ther­apy pro­fes­sion is at­tain­ing its heights and it is the best place for stu­dents to learn Phys­io­ther­apy Pro­gramme.
