Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book will be helpful to students and clinicians in looking up useful information quickly and easily; and will therefore assist the process of making clinical decisions based on grounded rationale and evidence."
Gladys Cheing, International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, November 2008, Vol 15, No 11
Aaron M. McBride
The book is an overview of pain, inflammation, and healing, and specific responses in regard to physical agents and implications in patient care. The purpose is to help students or licensed professionals further their understanding of the realm of physical agents and their physiologic rationale. An attempt is made to cover all aspects, thus making it the only necessary book for understanding and implementation of all physical agents in the healthcare rehabilitation setting. This book is written primarily for the student or licensed physical therapist. However, it is my opinion that athletic trainers and occupational therapists, whether student or professional, would benefit from this text. Initially, the physiological rationale behind pain, inflammation, cell mediated response, and tone are covered, including their effects on healing processes. All modalities and their respective responses are covered as well. The conclusion is a presentation of an integration of all principles of physical agents by case studies and patient implementation in the rehabilitation setting. Throughout the book, there are excellent diagrams and illustrations which assist greatly in explaining otherwise tedious physiologic processes and their responses to modalities. This is an excellent tool for its intended population. It is a thorough text that covers challenging topics, which are, nonetheless, the basics of all that is performed on a daily basis in the rehabilitation setting. Students as well as licensed professionals would benefit from this text in their personal library for reference or professional development.
