Overview

Coming this summer, this thoroughly up-to-date and practical reference book discusses all aspects of the knee. It is a mustfor sports therapists, physiotherapists, and any health professional involved in the assessment and management of knee injuries. Over the last 10 years the knee joint has been, perhaps, the most widely researched and published joint in the literature. The body of knowledge on the knee has been expanded from the standpoint of laboratory, clinical and preventive research. This book aims to organize a format from which clinicians can heighten their awareness and appreciation of the knee joint. It lays out a logical order to deal with dysfunction of knee disorders, so the clinician understands the anatomic structure and biomechanical principles of normal function. Once evaluation is completed a holistic plan of care can be designed and implemented. The latter part of the book provides clinicians with comprehensive protocol guidelines.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
