Research and Development
For decades, physiotherapy practice has been the subject of criticism for its lack of a research base. Despite an overall positive attitude towards evidence-based practice, most physiotherapists utilized treatment techniques with little scientific support. Our college has orchestrated a shift towards the use of research and scientific evidence to guide practice decisions
Being a research institute, we offer a lot of opportunities for our staff and students to carry out their research studies. Our staff and students are involved in research studies perennially. Our college has a lab with all the latest research equipments for conducting research in all the fields of physiotherapy (sports, Ortho, Cardio, Neuro, Paediatrics, CBR, OBG, etc).
Another important feature of clinical practice is evidence based practice. It is the explicit use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients and is a concept of growing importance for physiotherapy.
Fitness and Exercise Lab
Fit is not a destination, it is a way of life. Alva’s Fitmaxx, a holistic fitness centre which propagates the message of fitness into public as well as to the students has been the part of Alva’s College of Physiotherapy and Research centre since 2009. Equipped with different machines for workout, we focus on the overall fitness of a person. Equipped with advanced instruments where we analize baseline RMR, VO2 max, Repetition maximum, nutrition, core stability, BMI, fat ratio and prescribe exercises on individual basis and analyze the improvement every three months and document them.
Fitness trainers use progressive, successive training programs that are specific to each client. They select the appropriate loads, reps, sets and sequence of exercises therefore making your time more efficient, and ensuring better results than training alone. Workouts will be hard, but education with a fun element will have a positive effect on your whole life. Fitness Trainers will also provide nutritional and lifestyle changing advice, allowing you to achieve your goals faster
Exercise and Electrotherapy Labs
Being the basic subjects of physiotherapy, we believe that students should have strong base in these subjects. Hence we provide them with therapeutic modalities and best practical classes on Electrotherapy and exercise therapy under the guidance of skilled and experienced lecturers.
