Overview

With a new title and format, the 4th Edition of the previously titled Thermal Agents in Rehabilitation combines all modalities in one book. Its focus remains on expanding and strengthening clinical decision-making skills through sample case studies. A problem-solving approach with hands-on information describes the contemporary application of modalities with an emphasis on evidence-based practice. The 4th Edition has been entirely revised to reflect the terminology of the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice. A volume in the Contemporary Perspectives in Rehabilitation Series Edited by Steven L. Wolf, PhD, PT, FAPTA "This is the best overall text for modalities I've seen in my 14 years of teaching modalities. It has the meat without the unnecessaryand superfluous. I will be adopting it as my new text this coming yearand in years to come." -- Burke Gurney, PT, PhD., Assistant Professor, Physical Therapy Program, Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, University of New Mexico School of Medicine
