Physical Therapy Online Databases

These are the recommended databases to use when doing research in the field of physical therapy.  They will provide the best access to full text articles and citations in the physical therapy field. 

Online Resources

  • Atlas of the Human Body
    This visual aid from the American Medical Association's Patient Education Resources page provides anatomy and medical illustrations for the human body.

Google Scholar

  • Google Scholar
    Google Scholar is an alternative to using the online databases to search for journal articles. Simply put in your search terms and hit search. When used on campus, Google Scholar will automatically recognize D'Youville College holdings, but when using Google Scholar from home, there are three simple steps to follow:

    -click on the wheel in the upper right corner
    -select Scholar Preferences
    -enter D'Youville College Library under Library Links

    To find out if the full text of the article is available, click on either Full Text at DYC link to the right of the article citation, or Resources at DYC under the article citation. Sometimes there will be free PDFs of articles available as well; if there is, there will be a link to the right of the article citation as well.
