Community Physiotherapy is totally a new concept and less pursued specialization in physiotherapy (Rajan, 2013). This might be due to various reasons; to name a few, the lack of interest among physiotherapist to work in the communities, paucity of information on community-based physiotherapy, complex methods required to measure a community and reduced awareness about community health problems among physiotherapists (Rajan, 2012). Bangladesh is a developing country with a huge population, in that case community-based physiotherapy can be a perceived as an important cog in the wheel of the healthcare system. Although, in Bangladesh, Graduate physiotherapists have lack of interest in community based of physiotherapy due to lack of information about it. Here center-based physiotherapy is very popular and maximum physiotherapists want to settle in urban areas due to a good or comfort life with a good income. Center based physiotherapy depends on equipment, electricity, a lot of space etc and this center is run by a qualified physiotherapist. But the absolute growth of the disabled population in Bangladesh is approximately 25000 (Impact Foundation Bangladesh, 2002).
