As a relative newcomer to the PTA profession, I enjoy reading articles that can enhance my skill set. The review provides a comprehensive guide for management of musculoskeletal pain in common pain sites for use by practitioners, patients to measure their quality of care, and management health professionals. The strengths of the review is the large amount of data accessed globally from 11 countries and over 6000 individual records and 44 Clinical Practice Guidelines included in the study with a goal of patient centered care, pain management, and reducing health care expenses. The 11 Clinical Practice Guideline recommendations form a set of principles that reminds practitioners to provide patients with educational facts and advice that can be overlooked in a rush to send the patient to radiology imaging, surgery and/or prescribe opioids.
These 11 effective CPG's will enhance my own patient interactions and provide patients with more education to assess their own quality of care.
