Overview

Recent Advances in Physiotherapy builds on the work in the earlier volume Neurological Physiotherapy: Bases of Evidence for Practice updating the evidence base in neurology and providing new information and the latest evidence bases for treatments frequently used in other areas of physiotherapy practice. These include cardiorespiratory, orthopaedic, musculoskeletal and surgical conditions, and pain management.

Written by highly regarded physiotherapists with a substantial track record in both research and clinical practice, the book offers up-to-date information on treatment and management, and a critical analysis of the current evidence available to support the choice of intervention. There is a wealth of references on each topic, each rated to enable the reader to assess their relevance.   Each chapter begins with a real-life case study, this practical approach strengthens the link between research and clinical practice, which is so often missing.   It also encourages informed decision making in practice.

The book is intended to be used as a work of reference by both clinicians and researchers, to provoke discussion and identify areas where more research is needed. 

This engaging text will be of interest to a wide range of physiotherapists, both undergraduate and post graduate, to those who refer their patients for physiotherapy and also for administrators and others who commission physiotherapy services.
