What is Clinical Theory for Manual Therapy?
Clinical theory is very important as it provides the necessary foundation with which we can build our practice. Without clinical theory, clinical reasoning can not exist. Higgs and Jones (1) have defined clinical reasoning as a process in which a therapist, interacting with the patient, helps structure meaning, goals, and health management strategies based on clinical data, patient choices, and professional judgment and knowledge (from Clinical Theory). Three Peaks Teaching and Research Clinic believes that clinical theory is the bedrock of our profession and we work hard to provide courses that contribute to expanding our knowledge base and the application of clinical theory in our practice.
