Editorial Reviews

Philip Dean Zaneteas
This represents an attempt to provide a summary textbook on the rehabilitation of the injured athlete. The first eight chapters provide an overview of psychological and physiological factors in rehabilitation, the physical examination of the athlete, and goniometric measurement parameters. Subsequent chapters focus on the use of modalities, mobilization, and isokinetic testing. A general introductory chapter on the principles of rehabilitation is included. The second half of the book is devoted to assessment of specific rehabilitation areas, including the lower leg, ankle, foot, knee, hamstring, quadriceps, and groin. Low back, shoulder, and elbow rehabilitation as well as wrist and hand injuries are also addressed. The final sections are devoted to aquatic rehabilitation, upper extremity biometrics, knee and leg exercises, and a ten-exercise program for throwing and interval rehabilitation. The purpose of the text appears to be an attempt to provide a reference source for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries in athletes. This is not a text for general rehabilitation of the elderly or patients with serious underlying medical problems. Taken in this context, it is targeted for those caring for the athletic patient population. However, the underlying physiologic and rehabilitation principles can be extrapolated to a lesser degree with the non-athletic population. The text attempts to provide specific rehabilitation protocols only after introducing the underlying scientific rationale for their implementation. There is a thorough review of the scientific literature provided in each chapter, especially in the first half of the book. Diagrams, graphs, and photographs whichelucidate each topic are also clear and directed to the specific topic at hand. In terms of the target audience, this text represents a comprehensive introduction to residents in training. A great deal of the material, however, will probably be a review for the experienced physician. One strength is that a great majority of the contributing authors have a physical therapy background. This facilitates an emphasis on the nuts and bolts of physical therapy for specific musculoskeletal problems.
