Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan E. George, MS, PT (Centers for Rehab Services)
Description: The authors build a solid foundation of anatomy, physiology, dysfunction, and rehabilitation throughout a woman's lifespan in this book. By focusing 70% of the book on pregnancy from pre-conception to postpartum, they are able to expand upon pregnancy topics including maternal complications, fetal development, and therapeutic interventions for musculoskeletal dysfunction and labor. In this second edition, published 10 years after the first, topics not covered in the first edition are expansively covered, including high-risk pregnancy and the disabled pregnant patient as well as menopausal and pelvic floor dysfunction issues.
Purpose: In developing an introductory "handbook" for students and experienced therapists new to the women's health arena, the authors have exceeded their goal with the chapters on physical therapy practice issues and pregnancy related issues. Seasoned women's health clinicians will find many nice features in this edition to make it a quick reference for the clinic.
Audience: This book is for physical therapists and physical therapy students. The authors have extensive experience in women's health.
Features: Topics such as disease processes and their effect on pregnancy as well as musculoskeletal dysfunction and treatment in pregnancy are organized in shaded tables, making them easy to locate and understand. The product information and resource list serves as an introduction to unique equipment options and helpful organizations for the novice therapist. One limitation is the limited coverage of gynecology. As the authors also point out, other available texts provide a more comprehensive foundation for the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction including pain, prolapse, and incontinence.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for obstetric care in physical therapy by novice and seasoned therapists alike, and a good introduction to gynecologic care for the novice therapist. The language is clear and the tables are well-designed, and information is organized in a useable, quick-reference manner. The chapters are also filled with detailed text allowing for deep study outside of the clinic. This second edition will be appreciated in the women's health physical therapy community for many years to come.
From the Publisher
