While i was at it, I saw a post where a writer was trying to clarify the different functions of a medical rehabilitation therapist and those of a physiotherapist… I agree that Physiotherapy seem to be more popular than Meapy seem to be more popular than Medical Rehabilitation therapy, as I knew little or nothing about this professional group.
I decided to do some digging, and to my dismay, Physiotherapy is a profession under the purview of the Medical Rehabilitation Therapist (Registration) Board of Nigeria (MRTB).
I had been totally misled by the post that seemed to suggest that physiotherapy is an independent discipline different Medical Rehabilitation Therapy. But this is not so…
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
- Clinical Audiology
- Osteopathic Medicine
- Chiropractic Medicine
- Prosthetics & Orthotics
With this arrangement, it is clear that the MRTB should be seen as a heterogeneous regulatory agency saddled with the statutory responsibilities of regulating the training and practice of the above named professions in the Health Sector in Nigeria.
I also discovered that some key facilities are not accredited to offer the Board’s exclusive clinical services.
Below is the comprehensive list of accredited institutions by the board…
