Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ruthann L. Finch, MHS, PT, NCS (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This is a three-part introductory text focusing on the study of movement. The first part investigates the control of human movement. The second part presents exercise in rehabilitation, and the final section covers locomotion and ergonomics.
Purpose: The main objective of this text is to create a single resource that parallels the basic first year curriculum of physical therapy and allied professions programs. The authors achieve this objective through use of an effective format: outline, expansion of the outline, and summation.
Audience: The obvious target audience is physical therapy students. However, practicing clinicians will find several key features extremely useful.
Features: There are two key features that I found very attractive. The first is the excellent use of tables, diagrams, and figures used throughout the book. These illustrations of presented ideas can be used to effectively supplement patient, community, and professional education materials to promote better understanding of basic ideas. The second key feature is the range of references used throughout the text to encourage further investigation by the reader.
Assessment: This is a concise introductory reference. The format, illustrations, references, and general user-friendly appearance of the book are excellent. I believe the authors have created an inclusive book that encompasses the first-year curriculum successfully. The outline format at times is too brief on some subjects, such as balance and proprioception. However, if the reading is supplemented by strong instruction and application, the material will be covered thoroughly. Two strong, unique chapters are fitness testing and group exercise for normal and patient populations. This strong introductory textbook would be a wonderful adjunct to any professional's library.
From the Publisher
'Undergraduate and newly qualified physiotherapists will find this a useful support text for movement studies and it is certainly the most comprehensive text to date.'
