Overview

No other textbook gives physical therapy assistants complete, focused insight into their role in treating and managing common pediatric conditions. You'll find coverage of topics ranging from neurological rehabilitation to sports injuries and congenital disorders, as well as in-depth discussions of atypical development and pathologies. Each chapter follows a consistent, well-organized approach that defines each disorder, describes the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention, and rounds out the discussion with relevant case study examples based on established practice patterns.

• Chapters follow a consistent organization, first defining a disorder and then describing the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention.
• Case studies provide examples of physical therapy applications to help you connect theory and practice and build strong clinical reasoning skills.
• Special boxes highlight Clinical Signs, Interventions, and Case Studies to alert you to important information within the text.
• Practice patterns and case studies are formatted according to the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice to familiarize you with standardized terminology used in practice.
• Evolve® resources for students provide additional online activities for learning and self-evaluation.
