Overview


Thoroughly updated and now in full color, DeLisa's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the "gold standard" in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is the most modern and comprehensive book in the field. It can serve as both an introductory book for residents and a comprehensive reference book for practitioners. One volume covers physical medicine, the other rehabilitation medicine. Physical medicine covers principles of diagnosis and management, therapeutic approaches, and the management of specific conditions. Rehabilitation medicine covers the evaluation of the rehab patient, managing the rehab patient, and rehabilitation strategies and interventions. This edition has eight new chapters including evidence-based rehabilitation; robotic therapies; emerging technologies and interventions; and neural repair and plasticity.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Priya V. Mhatre, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This comprehensive textbook covers the field of physiatry, providing updates to the field since the last edition was published in 2004.
Purpose: "The purpose is to organize, summarize, and disseminate knowledge to practitioners of physical medicine and rehabilitation, with the ultimate goal of providing a fundamental reference for developing and established practitioners alike. Chapters are written by respected leaders in the field. "
Audience: Although designed for physicians in physical medicine and rehabilitation, many of the topics are presented in an easy-to-read format that will likely be well received by other providers in the field, such as physical, occupational, and speech therapists. The book is a manageable reference source for individuals in various stages of medical training, ranging from medical students and residents to accomplished providers. It is also a useful source of information for physicians outside the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation who are interested in learning more about specific populations frequently cared for by physiatrists, such as adults and children with disabilities.
Features: Although the book offers in-depth reviews of a vast array of topics, it is logically organized into six major sections with chapters that concisely summarize important issues. The book incorporates information on classic topics, such as stroke and spinal cord rehabilitation, as well as growing areas, such as diagnostic ultrasound. One section is devoted to scientific advances and reviews clinical trials currently underway and their implications for the field. An important feature is the online access to the complete text of the book, which is fully searchable. Given the large size of the book, this feature allows for easier and more versatile use of the book, especially for busy practitioners.
Assessment: This book serves as a thorough reference in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is useful for both the initial and continuing education of individuals in physiatry. This update incorporates scientific and clinical advances in the field, updates on fundamental topics, and improved diagrams and photographs. It is an excellent foundation for the education of clinicians.
