Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arthur E. Squires, BSPT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This book combines anatomy and pathology with aquatic exercise programs, tailored for each pathology.
Purpose: The purpose is to facilitate communication between physician or physical therapist and aquatic therapist. This is applicable in an arena where the physical therapist is more a manager than a hands-on clinician.
Audience: This book is most beneficial to a population with limited orthopedic or aquatic knowledge. Because of the book's review of general anatomy and pathology, it would seem to most useful to a population of professionals with a limited knowledge base in one of the three areas the book reviews. Although not all physical therapists have expertise in aquatics, most would find the anatomy and pathology information at an elemental level. The authors have a solid grasp of their material and previous published literature on aquatic therapy.
Features: The book has numerous illustrative drawings that demonstrate rather than decorate the text. The references reflect the general paucity of research in the area of aquatic rehabilitation. The book has a nicely organized table of contents and a thorough index. Uniquely, the work includes basic anatomy, pathology with aquatic programs.
Assessment: Although generally a well presented book with good general rehabilitative aquatic protocols, the inclusion of basic anatomy and pathology should be more a review for physical therapists. Therefore, some readers may find parts of this book directed below their level of expertise. Nevertheless, this book has some clear and concise programs to orient those interested in the use of aquatic rehabilitation.
