Physical Therapy Reviews Join the Physical Therapy Conversation

Physical Therapy Reviews

Physical Therapy Reviews encourages the publication of a wide range of papers including critical commentaries, opinion pieces, and extended critical reviews which are not in scope or of interest to other journals. We welcome your physical therapy research and in those basic and clinical sciences which are the basis of physical therapy. Our editorial board strives to support new and emerging researchers through our review process.
