• Poor rehabilitation adherence may lead to sub-optimal treatment outcomes, reduced clinic efficiency and increased cost of care. But despite this knowledge, research indicates that attendance at physiotherapy departments is within 54%-94%and can be as low as 40%. Several studies confirm that adherence to a clinic-based exercise protocol is often around the 50% markand may be particularly poor for unsupervised home exercise programs.

  • Rehabilitation adherence is an outcome of a complex interaction of physical, social, therapeutic and psychological elements. This second article, based on the findings of my doctoral research, highlights the role of social support and other social influences as a determinant of rehabilitation adherence.

  • While objective clinical testing is important and is given a lot of focus within clincal training programs, subjective assessment and history taking is one of the key aspects of the clinical reasoning process. A detailed subjective assessment will help a physiotherapist form provisional hypotheses as to the potential causes of the patient's presentation and therefore form the basis of the subsequent objective assessment.

One of the assertions was uterus can push back on the spine causing inflammation of spine.... just utter rubbish.... with no consideration of evidence or anything.. Twitterati went into hyperactivity in challenging the basis of assertions.. calling out the biased facts.... and finally the article was removed from their website..
