Abstract

Clinical practice in physical and manual therapy is experiencing a paradigm shift from an experience- and authority-based model to a more evidence-based model. National Practice Guidelines (NPG) are examples of this shift towards research-based knowledge. This article discusses the five steps in the development of NPGs. These steps are illustrated by a discussion of development and content of two NPGs produced recently in the Netherlands for the treatment of patients with non-specific low back pain.
