Overview

Neuromuscular Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM answers the call to what today's physical therapy students and clinicians are looking for when integrating the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice as it relates to the neuromuscular system in clinical care. As a part of the Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Neuromuscular Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM is edited by Joanell Bohmert 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, pathology, pharmacology, and imaging is provided. Each pattern then details one 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.
