Overview

Much more than a traditional dictionary, this extensively illustrated collection of terms, concepts, and definitions is the first resource of its kind specific to physiotherapy. Expanding on key definitions, it discusses important themes and topics, further clarifying the information with illustrations, diagrams, notes, and web links. Detailed, physiotherapy-specific information equips readers with essential terminology for the classroom and for clinical practice.

• A helpful appendix describes how to write academic essays and assignments.
• Common medical abbreviations, prefixes, and suffixes are listed for convenient reference.
• Vibrant illustrations clarify complex concepts and techniques.
