Orthopaedic Medicine Cyriax Clinical reasoning
Clinical reasoning in musculoskeletal manual therapy (Cyriax) ?
Since many years "Orthopaedic Medicine Cyriax" became a vast philosophy in medical and manual therapy practice. Today, "Cyriax" sounds very familiar to many of our colleagues around the world, but can we conclude that the content behind the Cyriax name is fully understood as well, or did it just become "oldfashioned" ? More important, is there any new imput ? Is it still actual ?
When we are confronted with soft tissue lesions of the locomotor system, we would like to safely reach a usefull mechanical diagnosis and start an efficient treatment plan. For this purpose, a detailed knowledge of updated Cyriax clinical reasoning or modern musculoskeletal medicine is useful.
The new standardized Orthopaedic Assessment Forms make functional examination and clinical reasoning easier, more practical and possibly more reliable.
