About

The Myotherapy Reading Room provides a curatedkeyword-indexed feed of topical peer review papers (journal articles), podcastsclinical practice guidelines and systematic reviews together with links to related papers and resources, all specifically selected to support clinicians in the practical application of evidence-based practice with regard to musculoskeletal pain and injury presentations, including chronic pain.

The lead-term, Myotherapy, specifically references the Australian profession whose remit is the evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions, and to that end, the content focuses on that domain.

For clinicians who are able to count time spent keeping abreast of peer review publications, and/or podcast, material accessed through becoming a patron may be claimed towards professional development hours, and accordingly each post includes supporting documentation (forms) which can be saved and used in maintaining records of reading and associated reflections.  Additional details can be found here
