Many Physiotherapists in India felt the need to create a new forum that would allow Indian Physiotherapists to meet and interact – in both clinical as well as in the academic sphere. They wanted a body that would represent the interests of vibrant physiotherapy professionals nationally as well as internationally. It was felt that a platform to share ideas, assist in promoting research, making recommendations to policy relating to the ethical practice and/or education of physiotherapy was currently lacking in the country. In order to achieve the purpose (s) stated above, It was proposed that an association of Physiotherapists (PT) be formed who are motivated to take the Physiotherapy profession in India forward to its truest potential by means of deliberations, contributions and actions.

Hence, a group of senior and experienced PT’s from across India came together to form the Society of Indian Physiotherapist (SIP) and met for the first time on 05.07.2015, at India International Centre, New Delhi
