|Who’s driving this thing?!|
I get most of my news from twitter and google reader. I LOVE taking in information from all over
and trying to synthesize it into one coherent thought. I’ve decided to start gathering these readings, tweeters, and resources on a more regular basis and share with you the things I thought were interesting. Many will have to do with physical therapy. Some will definitely not! You’ve been warned. Without further adieu, my first ever “Readings and Musings.” Love to hear your thoughts (if I haven’t already).
Appledorn et al. 2012. A Randomized Controlled Trial on the Effectiveness of a Classification-Based System for Subacute and Chronic Low Back Pain Current treatment based classification schemes do not improve outcomes in patients with subacute or chronic low back pain.
An Essay for Physical Therapists: Lets Move Forward… An inspiration to move forward, and some issues that are very relevent to physical therapy right now. There are some great discussion points about manual therapy, and the abuse of modalities. Comments at the end of the article are worth reading too!
