The American Physical Therapy Association's Top Five Choosing Wisely Recommendations - ISEAPT response

International Society for Electrophysical Agents in Physical Therapy

ISEAPT is an international physical therapy organization with specific interest in the area of Electrophysical Agents (EPA).

The International Society for Electrophysical Agents in Physical Therapy (ISEAPT) was officially founded on 8 February 2009 at its inaugural congress in Las Vegas, USA, and admitted as a WCPT Subgroup at the 17th General Meeting of WCPT in Amsterdam, June 2011.

Towards a new definition of electrophysical agents

EPA is defined as the use of electrophysical and biophysical energies for the purposes of evaluation, treatment and prevention of impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions.

  • Evaluation procedures involving EPA include (but are not limited to) ultrasound imaging and electro-neurophysiological testing in order to assist with physical therapy diagnosis, guide treatment procedures and to evaluate treatment outcomes.
  • Treatment procedures involving EPA include (but are not limited to) the use of electromagnetic, acoustic and mechanical energies to produce biophysical effects at the cellular, tissue, organic and whole body levels in order to achieve physiological and clinical effects which serves to maintain and optimize health.
