Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven Hoffman, PT,ATC,SCS(North Hills Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy)
Description: The editor and contributors discuss many aspects of knee rehabilitation. Each topic includes a description of relevant anatomy and biomechanics of the knee as well as the physical examination process and rehabilitation.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide physical therapists with up-to-date information on knee rehabilitation. The editor's intent is to provide the reader with information that is clinically relevant, scientifically substantiated, and presented in a practical manner. His objectives have been met. The editor has solicited the input of renowned researchers, clinicians, and educators. These individuals have many years of experience and the reader will find the information clinically relevant and directly applicable.
Audience: This book is written primarily for the physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, and athletic trainer. The editor and contributors are experts in their respective fields. They provide credible information based on their own clinical experience and review of scientific research to provide the practitioner with clinical, useful information.
Features: The text is divided into 30 chapters. There is a review of biomechanics and gross anatomy progressing to the clinical examination of the knee. Following clinical examination the contributors delve into detailed descriptions of the common clinical entities one encounters in treating and rehabilitating knee injuries. Specific chapters include bracing, manual therapy, neuromotor rehabilitation, aquatic therapy, and plyometrics. Overall, the editor attempts to pool together the many aspects physical therapists must consider in providing a comprehensive rehabilitation program.
Assessment: This text is a welcome addition to the rehabilitation literature. Although many textbooks and articles have been written on knee rehabilitation, the editor has provided a practical book applicable to various rehabilitation specialists. I highly recommend this text be purchased by all clinicians who provide orthopedic rehabilitation services to patients suffering from knee pathology. The cost is reasonable, the text is easy to read, all chapters are well referenced, and the pictures and graphs are clearly presented.
