Current evidence-based-practice guidelines for orthopaedic physical therapy management of patients with musculoskeletal impairments proposes the use of selective strategies according to different clinical patterns. The literature published in the last three decades offers a clear ongoing evolution of different classification systems. These systems are converging rather than competing into a common treatment-based classification. However, different classification systems are still not consistently interpreted by physical therapists of various clinical backgrounds. Directional Preference and Centralization are two widely used constructs in the Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, as well as in the Treatment-Based Classifications. This course deepens on the integration of these strategies to efficiently identify patients who may benefit from specific exercises in combination with manual therapy techniques.
