This chapter focuses on the principles of physical modalities, exercise therapy, mobilization, massage, traction, spinal orthoses, and electrodiagnosis.

This chapter is by no means a comprehensive review of the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Rather, it is a guide to some of the main principles that may fall under this field in regard to the examination. For a more comprehensive overview on a certain topic, the reader should consult the Further Reading sections that follow the answers.
