Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is awesome! It should really be called 'here is everything you need to know about rehabilitation and all the good stuff you have forgotten about'...This book gives you up to date information on the etiology of orthopaedic conditions, surgical procedures as well as surgical indications and considerations. However, its real strength lies in the guidelines and suggestions it has for the rehabilitation programs. The rehabilitation exercises are realistic, easy to implement and full of clinical nuggets which definitely makes the book come alive...This book will serve as a great reference point for any physiotherapists, or if you're like me it inspired a lot of new ideas for my clinic."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Omar Alphonso Ross, PT, ATC (North Hills Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy)
Description: This book provides clinicians with relevant, up-to-date, postsurgical rehabilitation guidelines, as well as seven new chapters that cover pathogenesis of soft tissue and bone repair and total shoulder replacement among them. The previous version was published in 2001.
Purpose: The author states that the purpose is to "provide the clinician with the most comprehensive evidence-based review of post-operative orthopedic rehabilitation."
Audience: This book is primarily geared towards physical therapist practitioners, but it would benefit student physical therapists.
Features: It covers the surgical indications, surgical procedures, therapy guidelines, home maintenance, and troubleshooting issues of many common orthopedic surgical issues. The book is concise, easy to read, and applicable to what clinicians face in the daily treatment of postoperative patients. An early chapter covers tissue healing and emphasizes the importance of proper application of techniques, exercise, etc., through phases of rehabilitation. The unique features of this book are the clinical question and answer sections in each chapter and the troubleshooting section at the end of each postsurgical chapter. The primary limitation is the lack of surgical illustrations to better provide readers with a clear understanding of surgical technique.
Assessment: This is a high quality tool for clinical physical therapists. It provides concise and relevant evidence-based information in an easy to read manner with a supplemental CD-ROM.
