We thank Dr Maher for his interest in the Editorial in which we argued for the continued inclusion of electrophysical agents (EPAs) in the entry-level physiotherapy curricula (Laakso et al 2002, Maher 2003). Our argument was predicated on the existing evidence, clinical practices and use of EPAs, and on safety issues. All aspects are integral to our argument and to current discussions.
