Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel J. Cipriani, MEd, PT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This textbook is a comprehensive guide to a thorough physical therapy evaluation, with a major emphasis on differential diagnosis. Its unique format includes the cooperation of physical therapists with medical physicians as coauthors for most chapters. As a second edition, it offers the same thoroughness of the first edition, with the addition of expanded information on the topics of emergency care and pharmacology.
Purpose: The primary purpose is to provide the physical therapist with the necessary tools to accurately screen all patients, and to recognize situations requiring the expertise of the medical physician. The contributors acknowledge that the physical therapist is often the individual with the greatest exposure to a patient in terms of time and interpersonal communications. This requires that the physical therapist be fully prepared to recognize signs and symptoms that may identify an underlying pathology.
Audience: The intended audience includes the physical therapy clinician as well as physical therapy students. This book is also appropriate as a reference for physical therapy assistant programs and physician assistant programs.
Features: The unique features include its coauthor format of physical therapists and physicians contributing together for each subject area. Chapters are well organized based on body systems. Each chapter is also provides an updated bibliography as well as an additional list of recommended readings. The book is also well illustrated to assist with descriptions of procedures and findings.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference source for the practicing physical therapy clinician and physician assistant. It is also highly recommended as a text for physical therapy curriculums to enhance a student's awareness and abilities in the challenges of differential diagnosis. This book should work well in both the undergraduate and entry-level master's curriculum. It is clearly and concisely written to provide the reader with an abundance of information to best evaluate patients and to be most aware of underlying pathologies that require the further involvement of the physician. This is a very timely second edition for physical therapy professionals.
