Overview

Updated and reorganized, the third edition of this popular book uses a problem-oriented approach to present the principles of electrical stimulation, physiology and useful instrumentation as they relate to electrotherapy. This comprehensive text focuses on the clinical effectiveness of electrotherapeutic modalities and their physiologic impact on function and healing. Featuring new case studies and review questions, it also includes new material on the use of electrical stimulation for tissue repair and pain management, improving muscle performance, and increasing functional activity. Physical therapy students and practitioners.

The book contains predominantly two-color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

This is the only electrotherapy book to incorporate the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, providing evidenced-based rationale and problem-solving approaches to patient care.

Editorial Reviews

Robert A. Sellin
This is a very readable, superbly organized text covering the physiology of excitable tissues, the theory of electrotherapy, and practical clinical applications of electrotherapy. Throughout the text, clinical approaches are related to functional problems with treatment alternatives based on neurophysiology and, when available, clinical trial research. The editors have successfully altered the format of this edition to help the clinician problem solve in electrotherapy by using the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice (APTA, 1997) in conjunction with this book. In addition, the editors have done an outstanding job of using standard terminology from Electrotherapeutic Terminology in Physical Therapy (APTA, 1991). This is one of those rare publications that one can use as a student to gain a foundation in electrotherapy, and then apply as a clinician for years to come. The contributors' years of teaching and clinical experience translates clearly in the practical nature of this text. Standardizing terminology and reformatting make this new edition noteworthy. However, it is the upgrading of all the sections and the addition of chapters on tissue repair that make this text essential reading for the serious clinician and all students. Clinical trial research, which validates the use of electrotherapy in tissue repair, is very powerful. Theoretical and clinical trial research findings are combined with the physiology of wound healing in the very practical presentation of Sussman's wound hearing protocol in Wound Care: A Collaborative Practice Manual for Physical Therapists and Nurses (Aspen Publishers, Inc., 1998).The case studies in the chapters on functional electrical stimulation and electrical stimulation of denervated muscle are excellent functional additions. It would have been nice to see a similar chapter on iontophoresis, which is conspicuous in its absence. This new edition is well written and researched, reflecting well the dynamic world of change in which we live. It is highly recommended for any physical therapist who attaches, or plans to attach, an electrode to a patient.

Substantially revised, new edition comprising 12 contributions that deal with the principles and clinical applications of electrotherapy. They address such issues as instrumentation and product safety; electrical stimulation for improving muscle performance, tissue repair, and denervated muscle; evaluation of new treatments; and therapeutic uses of biofeedback.
