I GUESS IN A COUNTRY SUCH AS INDIA....USE OF ASSESSMENT SCALES ONLY IF NEEDED IS MOST APT BUT IN OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE THE INSURANCE PAID FOR MEDICAL BILLS ARE VERY HIGH AND ALSO THE ONLY SOURCE OF THE UPGOING MEDICAL BILLS .........THE USE OF THESE SCALES FOR EVERY PATIENT IS A MUST....COS EVERYTHIBG HAS TO BE DOCUMENTED AND ALSO PRESENTED.

Thatz a well known fact Ajin, in most of all the developed countries evidence based practice is practised.

Yes, u are right,

Here in Holland we 're used to use assesments scales. There are many guidelines "Dutch Multidisciplinary Guidelines" in which assesment scales are used. But, don't think I do it for every patient and any treatment. No I only use it when neccesary. We only have 30 minutes treatment time, when 20 minutes is used to measure than it's no good. So don't think we only measure the whole time. We also use the VAS score for pain and the PSK a lot.

Good poll, go on !!

hi,
i think scales are important part of aseessment..for a neurological case i think balance asessment is most important. so we should take bergs balance every time or every patient related to neurological thing.

SHE WRITES....
Here usually the time allowed for one treatment session is maximum 45 minutes. So we dont get enough time to follow a detailed assessment scale. However for Neurological disorders it is a must to follow this balance scale assessments.So my opinion is we should assess the patients based on the balance scales if its necessary.ajin

yeah, it's understandable that using those assesment charts only when felt needed..but i dont understand this 'timing ' part of the treatment session!! what is that al abut? how can u fix a particular time period for treatment..and how can anyone ask us to determine how much time we have to deal with a patient? if we r goin to diagnose our patients adn plan our treatment session then i guess we alone need to determine how much time we woudl be having to treat the case and that too i dont think we can say doin passive movemtns for this particular mins, stretching for this particular mins , strengthening fo rthis particluar mins..is what is needed.!

i have come across quite few persons treating patients at home sayin' i need this amount of pay for treatin for this amount time..'! how can a treatment be time based?if i'm wrong, i feel someone should come up with somethng to convince me that it is the right way of treating patients until then i stil would certainly disagree with this way of practising physical therapy!

Only when I deem it necessary, really only to tease out particular balance issues.
