Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
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.
