Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa M Ruppert, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This handbook is a quick reference on physical medicine and rehabilitation topics relevant to daily clinical practice.
Purpose: It is intended to provide an understanding of rehabilitation and serve as a quick reference on various rehabilitation topics. There are few handbooks available for rehabilitation residents and medical students rotating through PM&R, and this book does well at providing information in a concise way so it can be applied in the clinical setting.
Audience: With its helpful quick overview of various rehabilitation topics, the book is best suited for medical students and rehabilitation residents. Fellows in the various rehabilitation subspecialties and attending physiatrists may also benefit, using it as a quick reference for conditions they may not routinely see in their practice.
Features: The overview this book provides covers the broad scope of physical medicine and rehabilitation from general principles to more subspecialized areas. It also is an introduction to many aspects of rehabilitation medicine, including interventional spine procedures and electromyography, helping readers understand their role in patient care. The illustrations provide correct anatomical guidelines for routine joint injections. The tables concisely outline the diagnosis of various conditions and management options that can be used in the clinical setting.
Assessment: This is a practical, quick reference that can be used by medical students and rehabilitation residents in the clinical setting. Fellows in the various rehabilitation subspecialties and physiatrists may also benefit from this handbook.
