Its implementation requires physical therapists, who are skilled at performing functional behavioral analyses based on physical, psychological and behavioral assessments. The purpose of the current study was to explore and describe PTs' assessments, analyses and their use of behavioral change techniques in initial consultations with patients who seek primary health care due to musculoskeletal pain.
