A complete, evidence-based guide to orthopaedic evaluation and treatment

Acclaimed in its first edition, this one-of-a-kind, well-illustrated resource delivers a vital evidence-based look at orthopaedics in a single volume. It is the ultimate source of orthopaedic examination, evaluation, and interventions, distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach to PT practice.

Turn to any page, and you'll find the consistent, unified voice of a single author-a prominent practicing therapist who delivers step-by-step guidance on the examination of each joint and region. This in-depth coverage leads clinicians logically through systems review and differential diagnosis, aided by decision-making algorithms for each joint. It's all here: everything from concise summaries of functional anatomy and biomechanics, to an unmatched overview of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Christopher James Hughes, PT,PhD,OCS,CSCS(Slippery Rock University)
Description: This voluminous second edition, with a companion DVD, was written for physical therapy students and experienced clinicians who will be practicing in an orthopedic therapy environment. The first edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The author's aim was to provide an all-in-one guide, review, and reference for clinicians involved in the evaluation and treatment of patients with orthopedic injuries. As grand as the author's objective is, the book is very comprehensive and could potentially serve as an encyclopedic resource.
Audience: Students in orthopedic healthcare as well as veteran clinicians can benefit from this book. The author is a practicing physical therapist and adjunct professor at Duquesne University School of Health Sciences.
Features: The five major divisions of the book cover the fundamentals of orthopedics, upper and lower extremities, the vertebral column, postsurgical rehabilitation, and pharmacology and medical imaging. The last two topics are new to the second edition. An evidence-based approach to exam and intervention is highlighted throughout the book. Chapters link didactic information to clinical procedures and provide clear objectives. Case studies and review questions challenge the reader and the DVD presents over 500 video clips to assist in practical applications. Rehabilitation goals and intervention techniques are clearly described. More emphasis could be placed on differential diagnosis and clinical decision making. The book also integrates terminology from the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Rev. 2nd edition (APTA, 2003), a standard in the physical therapy profession. An abridged pocket guide, similar to what was offered with the first edition, would be helpful, as the book is rather large.
Assessment: Major areas in orthopedics including anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics of movement are covered, along with a healthy dose of pathology that impacts patient function. Clinical pearls appear in highlighted boxes throughout, and camera icons indicate where video clips should be viewed. This second edition is more comprehensive than the first. Overall, this is a valuable reference that achieves a nice balance between detailing examination and treatment. Other books tend to be limited to addressing only one of these areas, but not both. This combination makes the book unique.
