Overview

The definitive guide to designing and implementing evidence-based rehabilitation programs using therapeutic exercise -- updated in full color

Musculoskeletal Interventions, 3rd Edition, is a comprehensive guide to the system considerations, design, implementation, and progression of rehabilitation programs for musculoskeletal injuries and dysfunction. Encompassing many aspects of musculoskeletal rehabilitation, with contributions from many renowned authors, it focuses on the practical application of theory in a clinical setting, making it valuable to both students and experienced physical therapists. Musculoskeletal Interventions features an easy-to-follow body region and functional approach to intervention strategies and is logically divided into five sections:

Foundations of the Rehabilitation Process

  • Addresses the important considerations in designing a rehabilitation program for the patient with a musculoskeletal injury
  • Provides a guide-based overview of the rehabilitation process as well as an introduction to Clinical Reasoning and Algorithmic Thinking in rehabilitation
Treating Physiologic Impairments During Rehabilitation
  • Presents information on various physical impairments that may need to be addressed as part of the rehabilitation process
The Tools of Rehabilitation
  • Provides an overview of important rehabilitation tools and strategies
  • Delivers detailed coverage of how these interventions should be incorporated into a rehabilitation program to achieve the individualized treatment goals for patients with musculoskeletal pathologies
Intervention Strategies for Specific Injuries
  • Covers specific rehabilitation techniques and interventions applied to the treatment of a wide variety of regional musculoskeletal injuries, dysfunctions, and post-operative conditions
Special Consideration for Specific Patient Populations
  • Discusses treatment considerations for specific patient populations, such as the geriatric patient, pediatric patient, and physically active female

This edition is enhanced by a new full-color presentation, as well as the inclusion of valuable learning aids, such as clinical pearls, protocol grids, algorithms, learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, and end-of-chapter treatment guidelines and references.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amanda M Blackmon, PT, DPT, OCS, CMTPT (Mercer University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences)
Description: This book details a variety of interventions for clients with musculoskeletal impairments, with a primary focus on therapeutic exercise. Updated from the 2007 edition, it is consistent with criteria in APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a "movement-based, functional perspective to the treatment of musculoskeletal movement and dysfunction." The selection and teaching of therapeutic exercise is lacking in many PT curricula, and this book will help to fill the void.
Audience: The book is suitable for a varied audience. It is intended for use in musculoskeletal interventions courses as a guide for the prescription, selection, teaching, and progression of therapeutic exercises. In addition, the authors assert that it can be used by practitioners seeking new, functional, and innovative progressions for exercises. The three authors are physical therapists and athletic trainers as well as professors in three different PT programs.
Features: The first of the book's five sections focuses on foundations of therapeutic exercises, tissue healing, and various impairments related to pain and posture. The second section addresses the specific physiological impairments of muscle performance, aerobic capacity, mobility, and neuromuscular control. Section 3 covers various types of therapeutic exercise interventions, including plyometrics, open and closed chain, PNF, core, aquatics, etc. This section also presents functional screens and interventions, including the FMS and the SFMA. Section 4 divides the body into regions and covers joint and injury-specific exercise interventions. The final section is devoted to special populations, including female athletes, older adults, and children. The book is guide-based, which makes is very user-friendly for PT faculty designing intervention courses. It also presents excellent hypothesis-oriented algorithms for clinicians. These charts are very useful for PT students and can serve as a guide for decision making and development of skills.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to any physical therapy curriculum. As a faculty member who teaches musculoskeletal interventions, I think this book will be especially useful in the instruction of this important and often under-taught portion of PT practice. This is the most comprehensive therapeutic exercise book suitable for current PT practice. Readers will appreciate the focus on the disability model and the emphasis on function. This edition incorporates more Guide-based terminology and teaches a more functional approach to rehabilitation, an improvement on the previous edition.
