Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Omar Alphonso Ross, PT, ATC (North Hills Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy)
Description: This book provides physical therapy students and clinicians with a wealth of information about treatment and examination in a manner consistent with the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Rev. 2nd edition (American Physical Therapy Association, 2003), as well as current and applicable evidence.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide students and practicing clinicians with recommendations for evidence-based rehabilitation, examination, and intervention for a variety of patients. It further provides generalist and specialist practitioners with guidance in providing care across a wide variety of areas and patients. The book allows online access by instructors for lab instruction and image collection. The CD-ROM that accompanies the book enhances the text. This is a worthy effort, particularly in tying the information based on the Guide and the best available evidence together in a book for the student and practitioner alike.
Audience: Although geared towards both students and practitioners, students may benefit the most, particularly in the alignment of this book with the Guide and its introduction during didactic and clinical education.
Features: This book covers musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, and integumentary systems. An interesting section provides information for interventions for many common conditions facing therapists.
Assessment: This is a necessary resource. Its strength is that it links evidence with the Guide without being confusing for students and too wordy for clinicians. This is a worthy addition to the library of anyone who teaches, practices, or is matriculating through a physical therapy program.
