Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A wonderful job of presenting the specific rehabilitation strategies for primary, secondary, and internal impingement... A concise, logical approach to rehabilitating each pathology. The multitude of pictures along with tables of classifications, descriptions, and protocols help to reinforce the thorough content through this section. [In the second section of the text] the authors touch on material that is not readily available to many practitioners. ..Comprehensive, easy to read, and an excellent soruce of current information on rehabilitation of the shoulder. This book can and should serve as a reference for all those involved in rehabilitating the shoulder including physicians, physical therapists, and athletic trainers. ..It would be an excellent resource for personal trainers who are involved in sport-specific training. The author and his contributors have provided the rehabilitation community with a wonderful book that, when read, will make us all better practitioners.--Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical TherapyClear yet concise...[An] aspect of the book that makes it better than other shoulder rehabilitation texts is the emphasis on instituting progressions on the basis of functional capabilities rather than on a specific timetable. ...An excellent book for all therapists who treat shoulders...informative...may...redefine how you design a patient's rehabilitation program.--ADVANCE for Physical Therapists and PT AssistantsWell organized, evidence-based, and reader-friendly...The tables...are an excellent resource...highly useful...[a] focused approach, review of recent literature, and illustrated discussion...A well thought out section...[about]return to activity issues...distinguish this book.--Doody's Book Reviews

Reviewer: Meenakshi Garg, MD, MPH (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This book offers an organized approach to nonoperative rehabilitation of the injured shoulder. Readers will particularly appreciate the helpful tables and illustrations that support the text.
Purpose: The author successfully presents an evidence-based kinetic chain approach to rehabilitation of common shoulder concerns. He also addresses appropriate and safe return to activity for the patient undergoing shoulder rehabilitation. These are must-know issues for anyone providing nonoperative care for shoulder injuries.
Audience: The author has geared this reference towards physical therapists and physicians. It is indeed an extremely valuable resource for both students and practitioners of physical therapy and athletic training, as well as for physicians.
Features: In this well organized book, the author highlights nonoperative rehabilitation of common shoulder conditions, with a special emphasis on kinetic chain approaches. Each condition is prefaced by an excellent synopsis of relevant pathology and clinical diagnosis. An additional section of the book is dedicated to issues encountered in returning a patient to activity, including concerns specific to athletes. This book is most notable for being well organized, evidence-based, and reader-friendly. The tables used throughout are an excellent resource for students and practitioners alike, and help to make a complex topic manageable. A variety of well placed illustrations are useful to any therapist or trainer designing shoulder rehabilitation programs. The return to activity concepts addressed in section two will be particularly useful to sports physicians and therapists/trainers intent on safely yet efficiently maximizing their patients' activity levels throughout rehab.
Assessment: This book is highly useful in addressing common shoulder conditions. Its focused approach, review of recent literature, and illustrated discussion will be useful to any clinician. A well thought out section dedicated specifically to return to activity issues, including current sport-specific suggestions for the athlete, help to distinguish this book from others in its field.
