Clinical guidelines developed by the EHDN Working Groups

The EHDN has supported the development of physiotherapy guidelines from 2009 and the latest physiotherapy practice guidelines were published in January 2020. The two key documents related to physiotherapy practice are the 2013 Physiotherapy Clinical Guidelines, and the clinical recommendations to guide physical therapy practice published in 2020.
The 2013 guidelines provide guidance on the management of seven treatment classification e.g. exercise capacity, mobility balance and falls and end stage care.
