Overview

As a part of Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Musculoskeletal Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM is edited by Dr. Elaine Rosen and Dr. Sandra Rusnak-Smith in a user-friendly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the Guide language, but also parallels the patterns of the Guide. In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, imaging, and pharmacology is provided. Each pattern then details two to five diversified case studies coinciding with the Guide format. The physical therapist examination, including history, systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed.
