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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 "This book is valuable for its explanations of each of the nine practice patterns and the case studies used to highlight the patterns… this is a comprehensive reference and resource for physical therapy students on understanding and using the guide for learning neuromuscular physical therapy. It is a valuable reference for experienced clinicians who are not familiar with the guide or how to employ it in clinical practice. The overall organization is easy to follow."  

— Barbara Jean Billek-Sawhney, PT, EdD, Slippery Rock University, Doody Enterprises, Inc.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara Jean Billek-Sawhney, PT, EdD, MS, GCS (Slippery Rock University)
Description: This book focuses on the nine practice patterns of the American Physical Therapy Association's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd rev. edition (APTA, 2003), in treating patients with neuromuscular issues. The other books in the Essentials in Physical Therapy series cover musculoskeletal essentials, cardiovascular/pulmonary essentials, and integumentary essentials. Each chapter begins with an introduction followed by anatomy and physiology reviews, pathophysiology, imaging, and pharmacology to explain each of the nine practice patterns. Chapters also incorporate one or more case studies to highlight the specific practice pattern. The cases present an in-depth physical therapist examination (history, systems review, tests, and measures), evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and plan of care, interventions, reexamination, and discharge.
Purpose: The series is designed to present the nine practice patterns set out in the Guide. This one presents case studies as examples for each of the practice patterns related to neuromuscular physical therapy.
Audience: The book appears most appropriate for entry-level physical therapy students. The editors view it as a valuable reference for both students and practitioners. The senior editor is a well-recognized leader, author, educator, and practitioner.
Features: Each of the nine chapters reflects a specific practice pattern in neuromuscular physical therapy. The introduction explains the Guide format for the performance of the physical therapist examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and plan of care. This book is valuable for its explanations of each of the nine practice patterns and the case studies used to highlight the patterns. However, there is a paucity of figures which means readers may need to refer to other resources. For example, neuroanatomy, without images or figures, is difficult to visualize and the explanations are harder to understand. Chapter six, on Pattern F for peripheral nerve injury, is a much easier read because of the 12 valuable figures. The cases are comprehensive and provide valuable detailed information.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive reference and resource for physical therapy students on understanding and using the Guide for learning neuromuscular physical therapy. It is a valuable reference for experienced clinicians who are not familiar with the Guide or how to employ it in clinical practice. The overall organization is easy to follow. However, physical therapy students and experienced physical therapists may need to consult additional books on neuroscience and neuromuscular rehabilitation to study any particular practice pattern.
