Evidence-based Physical Therapy

If you ask a person what their favorite therapy is, they will tell you it is the one that works. Here at Advance Physical & Aquatic Therapy, we strive to be the therapy clinic that works for all of our patients, by utilizing evidence-based practice (EBP). Using interventions that work is what EBP is all about. EBP has been defined as “physiotherapy (physical therapy) informed by relevant high quality clinical research” (Herbert, Jamtvedt, Mead & Hagen, 2005).

While certainly not a new concept, the last decade has seen EBP emerge as a standard in healthcare. We here at Advance cultivate an environment, where our clinicians are expected to deliver high-quality care, improve treatment outcomes and document those outcomes.

The primary purpose of EBP is to close the gap between research and clinical practice and to improve patient outcomes. Currently, at Advance Physical & Aquatic Therapy, all of our clinicians participate in a monthly journal club to ensure we stay up-to-date with the best available evidence for our treatment.

Goals of EBP

  • to make sure that all decisions made for patient care take into account “the best available evidence.”
  • to better plan and evaluate service delivery.
  • to better analyze research studies and direct those findings to better care.
  • take better measurement and do interpretation of outcomes to provide the best care possible.
  • to provide better patient information.
  • to better understand the reasons for lack of compliance by patients in relation to their PT care.
  • to accurately gauge the relationship between patients and physical therapists and its effect on health-related outcomes.
  • to develop theories based on evidence in practice.
