Overview

Much more than an update to the Evidence-Based Guide to Therapeutic Physical Agents, this Second Edition, now titled Therapeutic Electrophysical Agents: Evidence Behind Practice, enables you to translate your learning into practice. The Second Edition expands and strengthens the concept of evidence-based practice for the study and application of therapeutic electrophysical agents (EPAs) in the fields of physical rehabilitation, physical medicine, and sports therapy. It also reflects the latest terminology and standards from the American Physical Therapy Association's Guide to Physical Therapy Practice and the Disablement Model. The new pedagogical approach includes learning objectives beginning each chapter, critical thinking questions ending each chapter, and evidence-based case scenarios to guide your studies and help you apply your knowledge.
