From the Publisher
"This book is a superior resource for a new therapist in the field and an excellent teaching tool for students. For the hand therapist, it is an up-to-date reference. The author has taken her vast knowledge base and presented it in very clear terms. Impressive!"Doody's Health Sciences, July 2001
be essential reading for any non-hand specialist involved in the assessment and care of patients suffering common hand conditions" Ian Winspur, FRCS, FACS,, Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine 24/01/02

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Julie E Teal, BS in OT, CHT (Hand Therapy Specialists, Inc.)
Description: This third edition is intended to educate the beginning therapist about the most common diagnoses seen in hand therapy. It briefly but clearly covers the diagnoses, then moves on to treatment techniques. It was last published in 1992.
Purpose: The author's primary goal is to highlight current practices in hand surgery and therapy. Her overall hope is to assist therapists' confidence in the early phase of rehabilitation. She does quite a nice job of clearly outlining the issues for each diagnosis in a condensed fashion.
Audience: This is an excellent book for beginning therapists who have few resources available. It is concise, clear, and practical, which would help any therapist's confidence in proceeding with a diagnosis that was fairly new to them. Although it is obvious that this is intended for beginning therapists, I enjoyed the excellent pictures and clear descriptions. This book is a superior resource for a new therapist in the field and an excellent teaching tool for students. For the hand therapist, it is an up-to-date reference. The author has taken her vast knowledge base and presented it in very clear terms. Impressive!
Features: This book briefly covers evaluation and general treatment techniques, then moves into the most common hand injuries. The author covers the diagnoses, then returns to more specific treatment techniques. Beginning therapists can get started with this book, then as they see more complex injuries, they can use the references to explore treatment strategies. One example is PIP intra-articular fractures, which require a vast amount of knowledge to diagnose and treat. The author introduces the topic and shows a sample splint, allowing the reader to determine if the patient might be a candidate for this therapy procedure. This will get new therapists thinking or challenging the more experienced therapist to research further. The illustrations are very good and include drawings, X rays, diagrams, examples of splints, and exercises. The only possible shortcoming of this book is that it is condensed, but it will stimulate thinking and assist the interested therapist to move up to a more detailed book.
Assessment: I will use this book with new staff. It will give them a good starting point and, hopefully, stimulate them to take the next step. It can't compare to Rehabilitation of the Hand: Surgery and Therapy, 4th edition (Mosby, 1995), by Hunter et al., but it is less intimidating and more affordable for a new therapist.
