Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher James Hughes, PT,PhD,OCS,CSCS(Slippery Rock University)
Description: This is an updated compilation of the principles and techniques that form the basis of prescribing individualized therapeutic exercise in rehabilitation. The previous edition was published in 1996.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the primary authors, is to provide a foundation of concepts and techniques upon which an individualized program of therapeutic exercise can be built. This is a worthy objective since there are few comprehensive books in the area of therapeutic exercise. This fourth edition represents a major revision. Several chapters have been rewritten and new information on mobilization with movement techniques as well as aquatic exercise have been added. The language has been completely updated to be consistent with terminology in APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd edition (American Physical Therapy Association, 2001). The revisions have strengthened the book considerably and I believe the authors have met their objectives.
Audience: The information is pertinent to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physiatrists, and others in rehabilitation medicine who prescribe therapeutic exercise programs for patients with musculoskeletal problems. However, the primary audience appears to be physical therapy students and practicing therapists. The authors are credible authorities in the areas of therapeutic exercise.
Features: A wealth of information is covered in each chapter. The emphasis is on treatment and exercise progression. However, a separate appendix addresses guidelines for performing a musculoskeletal examination. Regional coverage of the major joints of the body includes an anatomical and kinesiological review of each joint. Nonoperative and operative management of common musculoskeletal injuries is found in each section. Critical thinking exercises, laboratory exercises and case study questions are found at the end of each chapter to provide the reader with strong application of the didactic material. Specialized chapters are also included for managing the obstetric patient, vascular disorders of the extremities, and pulmonary conditions. Illustrations, tables, and graphs are well done and highlight important material for the reader. The learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter are clearly written. Exercise progressions and guidelines are reasonable and will provide the reader with a basic template to follow during rehabilitation of the pathologies cited. Because of the increased size of the book, the spiral bound cover seems insufficient for easily perusing the material. However, the spiral binding may be appropriate for students using the book in laboratory activities.
Assessment: This is one of the most comprehensive books on therapeutic exercise. The material is well written and well referenced. I believe the information would be ideal for courses in physical therapy that focus on therapeutic exercise for the orthopedic population. Practicing clinicians will find this to be a good reference and review of current techniques. Purchase of the fourth edition is warranted since many new sections have been added. The authors should be commended on compiling and continuously upgrading this very important book. I highly recommend it.

    I Also Recommend:

    A cornucopia of exercises.

    I like two things about this book. The first is that it is very thorough and complete. Exercises, both stretching and strengthening, are included for basically every major muscle group or extremity motion. Furthermore, the book is divided up well enough that you can find what you're looking for fast. <BR/><BR/>Secondly, I like the fact that this book is evidence-based, meaning that it backs up what it suggests with references from the scientific literature. In fact, it's so good that it can be a great place to start a literature search from. <BR/><BR/>Know too that this book is mainly written for people who have some medical background of sorts, so if you're just an average reader looking for some workout exercises, this probably isn't your book. Rather, I feel like the book is better suited for athletic trainers, personal trainiers, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, massage therapists, and so on. Practitioners looking for more info on the shoulder might also want to check out Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff -for more detailed ex's on rotator cuff tear prevention and rehabilitation.

    Fantastic book

    Very practical and easy to read. Thoroughly referenced to support the modalities described. I've already committed highlighting and tabs to it.

    The fifth and sixth edition have both the same errors on the lum

    The fifth and sixth edition have both the same errors on the lumbar plexus lateral cutaneous nerve and femoral nerve. Both nerves should be on the POSTERIOR DIVISIONS group., NOT ANTERIOR DIVISIONS. Kisner and Colby kindly check it out on page 359 in 5th edition. the same error  in the 6th edition!

In fact, it can be a great place to start a literature search on some topics its so good. So who's the book for? Well, its mainly written for people who have some medical background so if you're just an average reader looking for some workout exercises, this isn't your book. Rather, I feel like the book is better suited for athletic trainers, personal trainiers, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, massage therapists, and so on.

    Will never go out of style.

    Books like these will never go out of style. I have an earlier edition of it and after practicing for 12 years as a physical therapist, I STILL use the darn thing. I have seen the new edition and it is very good. Well referenced and a good place to start for literature reviews on selected topics. The authors have certainly done their homework.
