Abstract

Electrophysical agents (EPAs) are part of the arsenal of techniques that manual therapists have at their disposal for the management of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. An argument can be made that when used judiciously and appropriately as one part of a multimodal approach to treatment, EPAs have the potential to enhance patient care. For the discerning manual therapist, there are several issues to reflect on when considering the use of EPAs as an adjunct to other techniques.
