PT Assessment 101: Physical Therapy Assessment in Vet Medicine

01 Aug 2018
Often the most important part of successful rehab is the assessment and diagnosis made by the rehab therapist. The assessment techniques, novel deductive reasoning skills, and examination of overall function are what physical therapy and physical therapists are bringing to the veterinary field. • Veterinary medicine tends to rely on what can be called a ‘patho-anatomical’ diagnosis, whereas physical therapy and human medicine to a certain extent look at what can be termed a ‘patho-functional’ assessment. Differences will be elucidated.• Weak muscles, short muscles, tight muscles, overactive muscles, joint restrictions (articular movement dysfunctions), peripheral nerve impairments, and/or pain can impact the FUNCTION of a patient.• Joint-play, end-feels, myotomes, dermatomes, resisted tests, and special tests... and how they impact your physical examination and ultimate diagnosis.
