Upcoming Physical Therapy Articles

How to deal with pressure by tipping the balance

By Dr Martin J. Turner PhD CPsychol. HCPC Reg

This article outlines a practical and evidence-based framework that enables individuals who support athletes to promote positive responses to performance pressure. The ability to deal with pressure is one of the most important things an athlete can develop, and in this article I introduce and explain the concept of ‘tipping the balance’. This concept offers simple and effective strategies for enabling athletes to react well to pressure, bringing together contemporary research evidence and practical experience.

Prevention and management of anterior cruciate ligament injury

By Dr Ian Horsley MSc PhD, MCSP MMACP CSCS and Dr Lee Herrington MSc PhD, MSCP CSCS

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the worst knee injuries to sustain in sport, with less than 50% of athletes returning to sport in the first year following surgery and high rates of reinjury. The process for the reduction of ACL injury risk or rehabilitation following ACL repair are essentially the same. This article describes the risk factors for ACL injury, tools for injury/injury risk assessment and strategies for rehabilitation and injury prevention.

Upcoming Manual Therapy Articles

Manual therapy student handbook: Musculoskeletal assessment (chapter 3)

By Julian Hatcher Grad Dip Phys MPhil, MCSP FOM

In order to treat a patient effectively, the clinician must first make an accurate assessment of the patient’s condition. This article, part of a series on manual therapy (See the ‘Contents panel’ for further details), will take you through all the steps required for making a proper musculoskeletal assessment and give you the best chance of solving your patient’s problems.

Manual therapy student handbook: Musculoskeletal diagnosis – a pragmatic model of clinical reasoning (chapter 4)

By Julian Hatcher Grad Dip Phys MPhil, MCSP FOM

This article is part of a series on manual therapy (See the ‘Contents panel’ for further details) and takes the reader step-by-step through the process of clinical reasoning and how it aids the identification of the tissue that is the source of the patient’s problems. Combined with a knowledge of common clinical conditions, this process allows the therapist to predict a diagnosis, to direct appropriate treatment at the source of symptoms, and helps in the creation of relevant rehabilitation processes for restoring full functional capacity.
