NewGrad Physio: ‘3 Simple Steps To A Great Initial Assessment’
Being able to clinically reason what you are doing in your patient assessments, treatments and rehab, is key to getting consistent patient results.
Without it…you are just guessing!
We talk about clinical reasoning ALL the time in the therapy world…
Yet most therapists, even experienced ones, do a really poor job in actually applying this practice to their day to day work.
Do you sometimes go through your assessment and even if you are unsure what the diagnosis is, carry on regardless?
Do you prescribe rehab exercises or using treatment techniques just because you are comfortable with them…
Or use techniques or exercises just because they have worked well in the past with similar patients…
Or use random exercises with your patients just because they appear popular this week on Instagram?
You are not alone…
But you should never start treating your patient until you are clear about what you are actually trying to fix.
Listen to this week’s podcast episode where I give you 3 simple steps you can follow to ensure you don’t make this big mistake and ensure you can clinically reason any treatment technique or rehab exercise you use.
Enjoy the show!
