Co-Kinetic is an online content resource and printed journal for physical and manual therapists. It features articles, videos, podcasts and conference presentations on a wide variety of both clinical as well as business related topics relevant to physical and manual therapists across the world. All the content included on the site focuses on practical application and is aimed at saving practitioners time and money. It has been developed by the publishers of the translational sports medicine and manual therapy journal, sportEX, which was launched in 1999. The printed journal is also available as a subscription.
Our goal at Co-Kinetic is to find ways we can use our skills in publishing and business, to give you tools and resources that make you look like you've got all the time in the world (even if that's not necessarily how you always feel). Click here to see just some of our features and benefits.
Most practicing therapists would agree that you don't actually start learning how to use your new found skills when you qualify until you start putting them into practice regularly. Like driving, you learn the rules of the road and the physical and neurodynamic skills to manoeuvre a car, but it's only after you pass your test that you really start to learn how to drive.
But unlike cars and roads, where the rules don't really change, anything involving the human body, can and does....regularly.
A good therapist has to continually learn and adapt. Evidence-based practice is crucial but so too, as we all know, is practice-based evidence.
But evidencing that learning can feel like a bit of a burden and we all dread that communication from our professional association, telling us we've been selected to be audited. In reality we're learning all the time, we just don't have time to stop and write the lessons we've learnt down.
To try and ease some of this burden we do a few things with our articles.
Another of the most common 'stresses' that our readers report is the amount of time it takes to keep up with changes in research, and let's not get started on social media!
Our readers fall into three camps when it comes to social media:
And yet 87% of the people we surveyed begrudgingly admitted that it could be useful both for keeping up to date as well as a potential marketing tool, but only 14% actually engaged in it regularly for one of the above purposes.
We get it. Time is a huge issue. So very early on we introduced our Journal Watch sections and a few years ago we introduced our monthly Social Watch. We won't find everything that you might want because that would be overwhelming for everyone, but we will make sure you don't miss anything important.
With our content you can be 100% confident that your knowledge is completely up to date, you’re on top of changes in the research evidence base and that your treatments are as effective as the evidence supports.
Our multi-layered peer-reviewing system and international commissioning editor panel also ensure a truly global perspective.
