Publication date2011

The physical therapist is an essential actor of the medical management of patients with osteo-articular problems. After an initial evaluation, based on the information provided by the prescribing physician, he provides a "physiotherapeutic diagnosis" in terms of deficiency. He then proposes a number of passive and active techniques and may teach the patient exercises to practice at home. This article outlines prescription information for the physician, describes the main techniques used by the physical therapist and makes prescription recommendations for common osteo-articular problems.
