Though sociology is a subject of study in Bachelor of Physiotherapy curriculum, generally there is a little enthusiasm for the subject amongst the students in spite of its importance for their future profession. This may be due to a paucity of suitable books aimed specifically at physiotherapy students. The present book is an attempt to fill the gap.

Various topics are introduced in an easy to understand language and their relevance to health care is stressed to make the subject interesting to the students of physiotherapy.

A number of diagrams are included to supplement the text in explaining important sociological concepts and their applications in health care.

This book is prepared based on the bachelor of physiotherapy curricula of different Indian universities.
Some of the important topics covered include role of social factors in health and disease, epidemiology in relation to sociology and clinical medicine, role of society in health generating activities, hazards of urbanization and their health impact, role of cultural factors in health and disease etc.

The book will be highly useful to nursing students and health care workers also.
