Evidence-Based Practice in Tendinopathy
See more testimonials
Evidence-based practice is about integrating best evidence research with clinical expertise as well as a patient preference. Applying an evidence-based practice approach to the management of tendinopathy is not as simple as applying one set of research findings, from a single article, in a recipe format for a patient. Every patient presents with a unique clinical picture. The therapist managing the patient should apply a broad base of evidence to clinically reason a comprehensive management plan. It is important that management is not recipe-driven but should be based on the best evidence available at that time bearing in mind that evidence-based practice is fluid and constantly changes as more evidence is produced.
