Physiotherapists require a high level of anatomy understanding in order to inform appropriate and detailed assessment and treatment of their patients. It is therefore a core learning requirement for many. Physiopedia should reflect this need with high quality articles that are well coordinated with other content on Physiopedia.
This project follows a recent review and further work on the anatomy content on Physiopedia which found poor coverage of anatomy across all of the disciplines of physiotherapy. When focusing on musculoskeletal anatomy there is 12% coverage of bones, 40% coverage of joints, and 35% coverage of muscles, 2% coverage of nerves and 8% coverage of ligaments. The review found that anatomy pages on Physiopedia rarely report on clinical skills of assessment or treatment which would make our content stand out for physiotherapists.
