One of the many interesting topics discussed was the importance of "touch" in treatment. In some quarters physiotherapy seems to be less about hands-on treatment now and more about a ship 'em in- ship 'em out approach, with a one size fits all approach for exercises. Not getting hands on often seems to be the norm and so the skills of feeling with our hands is being lost.
Thank goodness that our physios do not subscribe to this approach but really value the power of "touch".
Tell me what you think!
