Overview

The first pathology text designed specifically for physical therapists, now updated in this 2nd edition! Remarkably practical and easy to use, a body-system organization and at-a-glance format presents the basic science and the clinical implications of disease within the rehabilitation process. Easily look up common illnesses, diseases, adverse effects of drugs, organ transplantation, laboratory values, and much more to see how the patient's conditions might affect therapy and outcomes.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard A. Rutt, PhD, PT, RN (Pacific University)
Description: This text provides information for the therapist to better appreciate the significant overlap between signs and symptoms of neuromusculoskeletal conditions and other medical pathological conditions. Wherever possible a feature, Special Implications for the Physical Therapist, is provided for the therapist to consider prior to developing a treatment plan. The information in these sections quickly outlines any special considerations necessary for each pathologic condition presented.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information designed to facilitate the students' and clinicians' understanding of how pathological processes can affect their practice. The therapist must recognize when medical complications require precautions or even possibly represent a contraindication to certain techniques or to therapy altogether.
Audience: This text is written for entry-level students who are beginning their physical therapy education, for post-professional students, and for practicing clinicians.
Features: It is divided into four major sections. The introductory section presents an overview of pathological concepts taking into account biopsychosocial aspects of health, aging, illness, and disease. Section 2 presents information dealing with pathology of individual organs and organ systems. Diseases presented in this section constitute what is traditionally referred to as clinical medicine. Section 3 covers pathology of the musculoskeletal system and Section 4 discusses the neurologic system. Each disease process is discussed from the perspective of a traditional model with a clinical emphasis. Whenever possible, other considerations such as nutrition, medication, psychosocial status, and emotional response to the illness and/or treatment are included. The last chapter lists laboratory tests and normative value for these common tests.
Assessment: I have used this as the required text for my medical pathologies and disabilities class. I have taught this class for the last 10 years and had not found an adequate text until the publication of this book. While no single text can cover, in sufficient detail, all medical, skeletal, and neurological disorders, this text provides more than adequate information about many of the most common disorders. I highly recommend i as an addition to anyone's physical therapy library.
