A practical text covering the theory and the practice of clinical reasoning skills for all physical therapists. Provides readers with activities to improve their own clinical reasoning within their own clinical setting. With a range of very high-caliber international contributors in the field of physiotherapy practice, this book gives the answers to the practitioner's question of how does one apply the theoretical knowledge involved in clinical reasoning to practice and how can one become a better practitioner as a result.
Chiropractic Journal of Australia, December 2004 "The book is extremely useful for clinicians of all manual disciplines. Improved clinical documentation, which is a core component of evidence based practice."
"The authors have written an exceptionally well produced text for physiotherapists, osteopaths and other manual therapists on the art of clinical reasoning and following a diagnostic plan through to a conclusion...This text can be heartily recommended to all therapists wishing to explore all the options using a case by case analysis of real patients and their complaints." Osteopath Scotland, July 2010
