Physical Therapy Reference Tool Keeps Information at Your Fingertips

Even the most seasoned physical therapist needs to refer to clinical reference materials from time to time. Whether you choose to refer back to an old textbook or your favorite journal, finding the specific information you are looking for can take time.  This week’s expert has made finding musculoskeletal clinical reference material easier. Daniel Rhon, MPT, DPT, DSc is a research physical therapist at Madigan Army Medical Center in Seattle and the Chief Operating Officer at Clinically Relevant Technologies. He shares information about some reference tools designed specifically for your iPhone and other mobile devices.

Clinically Relevant developed several medical software applications to help physical therapists diagnose musculoskeletal conditions and make decisions based on evidence-supported principles. The apps cover everything from clinical tests for musculoskeletal exams, orthopaedic manipulative therapy, low back pain management and spinal manipulation. The applications provide instructions for properly performing tests for diagnosing musculoskeletal conditions, video demonstrations and links to supporting peer-reviewed references.  In addition to serving as a clinical reference tool, several universities offer students the choice of using the applications or a traditional textbook.
