Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michelle M. Masterson, MEd, PT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This textbook offers a scientific approach to the pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of arthritis. It includes the effects of arthritis on other aspects of the individual patient, such as the cardiovascular system, psychosocial issues, and across the lifespan. The text is also research oriented and provides a basis for review of the literature and methodological principles.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive scientific approach to the physical therapy management of arthritis. It presents an interdisciplinary approach that includes pharmacological, surgical, and psychological management of the patient with arthritis. It addresses the many types of arthritis and specific considerations for the evaluation and treatment of each.
Audience: Clinicians and researchers will find this book an especially valuable resource for the management of patients with arthritis, the critical review of relevant literature, and the basic principles of research as they relate to all fields of health care. Educators would find this text useful as a supplemental resource for their curricula.
Features: This text includes the effective use of a variety of visual aids. Illustrations, photographs (black-and-white as well as color), x-rays, charts and tables, all enhance and help clarify the concepts and information being presented. Various chapters include case studies and relevant research questions. Appendixes are provided to offer additional information regarding assessment instruments, outcome measures, and community resources.
Assessment: This is a very thorough text that addresses arthritis from the cellular level to community-based programs to assist with its management. The book includes an interdisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of arthritis that is based on scientific principles and current research.
