Taiwo Oyewumi - President, NSPIt gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Nigeria Society of Physiotherapy (NSP). The NSP, the embodiment of Physiotherapists in Nigeria, is a member of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) and a leading member of the WCPT Africa Region (WCPTA). The NSP shares in the principles of the WCPT that every individual is entitled to the highest possible standard of culturally appropriate health care provided in an atmosphere of trust and respect for human dignity and determined by sound clinical reasoning and scientific evidence.

Physiotherapy is a health care profession which involves evaluation of patients through the administration of physical tests to determine the presence and/or extent of an injury prior to the use of physical modalities for preventive and therapeutic purposes. Physiotherapy is concerned with curative and rehabilitative services by the use of physical agents and modalities.

Such information include our history, training programs, our various publications, the practice of physiotherapy in Nigeria including regulating laws and our regulating Body. This website will also introduce you to members of the NSP National Executive Council and some other colleagues at home and abroad.
