  1. Profession and life : separate worlds.

    Article - En anglais

    How do physiotherapists relate to and examine patients ?

    This question was the point of departure for this article and it immediately gave rise to another : what is the relationship between professional knowledge and general experience ?

    Data were collected as part of a project where encounters between patients and physiotherapists are analysed.

    The encounters were directly observed and video-taped, and the participants individually interviewed afterwards.

    The article is based on a detailed analysis of two encounters.

    It is shown how both therapists direct their examination towards local symptoms and conditions ; the emphasis being on joint mobility.

    The information obtained is adapted to the therapists'biomedical frame of reference.
