Physiotherapy patient interaction important for pain reduction
According to University of Alberta physical therapy PhD grad Jorge Fuentes, how a physiotherapist interacts with a patient verbally, through eye contact, body language and listening skills is almost as important as the treatment itself. Fuentes found that how physical therapists interact with patients plays a significant role in pain reduction. It's the first time that such non-specific factors of physical therapy treatment have been studied in a randomized controlled study.
