This paper explores the current practices of physiotherapists working in neurology and argues that a techniques versus science imbalance makes it necessary to develop a scientific knowledge base within physiotherapy practice. Scepticism, determinism and empiricism are identified as three major elements underpinning a scientific approach. Each element is defined, elaborated upon and pragmatic recommendations offered in order to facilitate the implementation of these elements in physiotherapy practice.
