Background: In developing countries with low income, one of the most common causes of hospitalization is Dagdha (burn) and it also contributes to secondary problems, such as disfigurement, contractures, and scar tissue development. On the basis of degree/depth of tissues involved the burn may be classified as superficial, superficial partial, and deep partial, deep. Physiotherapists and occupational therapists, as part of the specialist burn multidisciplinary team, have many overlapping expertise and positions in the treatment of burn injury victims by delivering drills and splintering. Methodology: The data were collected from the electronic databases, including PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, Springer publications, Statewide Burn Injury Service, McGraw-Hill publications, etc., This review included burn patients of all age groups and both genders. Results: This systematic review indicated that physiotherapeutic intervention played a vital role in the management of Dagdha (burn) injury not only to reduce pain and scar but restoring the musculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary functions and making patient functionally independent so that they can enjoy their rest of life independently. Conclusion: This systematic review study concluded that physiotherapy played an important role in the management of all types of Dagdha (Burn) injuries of all age groups.
