Library Tips for Physical Therapy
The two most important article indexes for Physical Therapy are CINAHL (the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature) and Medline. CINAHL indexes more journals that are specifically aimed at physical therapists, and Medline is the largest database of biomedical literature worldwide.
You may also use PubMed, the publicly available version of Medline.
