Overview

The third edition of Therapeutic Exercise for Musculoskeletal Injuries is the most comprehensive text available for understanding and applying therapeutic exercise techniques. Thoroughly updated, this major resource contains an extensive explanation of the science and application involved in developing safe therapeutic programs for the general population as well as individualized programs for specific clientele.

With content specifically aligned with the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) accreditation standards, Therapeutic Exercise for Musculoskeletal Injuries is a key text for students preparing for the athletic trainers’ Board of Certification exam. In the text, respected clinician Peggy Houglum presents the most current evidence-based information regarding therapeutic exercise techniques. This information and Houglum’s knowledge gained from nearly 40 years of experience working in athletic training facilities, orthopedic physical therapy clinics, hospitals, and sports medicine clinics offer readers a valuable mix of research-based theory and experience-based clinical applications.

One of six texts in the Athletic Training Education Series, the third edition of Therapeutic Exercise for Musculoskeletal Injuries assists readers’ understanding of the why, what, and when of therapeutic exercise techniques. Whereas other texts merely describe how to perform therapeutic exercise techniques, Houglum’s text details what occurs physiologically, why applications are important, and when treatments are effective. This approach encourages professionals to critically examine each patient’s situation and to develop programs to safely rehabilitate injured individuals.

Building on the strengths of previous editions, this thoroughly updated third edition contains an increased emphasis on evidence-based approaches to the development of rehabilitation programs. Following are new additions and updates:

• New chapters on joint replacement and age-group-specific rehabilitation principles • A more in-depth approach and emphasis on progressions from functional to activity-specific exercise • An enhanced focus on criteria for return to play • A detailed description of articular cartilage healing • Added information on rehabilitation of knee articular resurfacing • An expanded section on spine stabilization techniques • The most current knowledge and trends in care for common tendon pathology

For ease of reading and quick reference, each of the exercise progressions and rehabilitation programs presented have been categorized and reformatted. Enhanced with over 900 photos and nearly 300 illustrations, Therapeutic Exercise for Musculoskeletal Injuries, Third Edition, stands alone as the most current and valuable reference for rehabilitation professionals.

The third edition of Therapeutic Exercise for Musculoskeletal Injuries offers a range of learning aids to assist students of diverse learning styles. Chapter objectives, practical scenarios, key points, key terms, sidebars, critical thinking questions, and references will help students absorb, review, integrate, and apply the content. In addition, the text includes approximately 175 lab activities for self-study or for completion in a laboratory setting. The labs ask students to perform techniques and exercises with a partner, make observations and measurements, and design programs for hypothetical patients. Lab activities are separated by chapter and include 5 to 10 exercises per chapter. For instructors, the text includes time-saving supplemental materials, such as a fully updated instructor guide, test bank, and presentation package plus image bank.

 

Therapeutic Exercise for Musculoskeletal Injuries, Third Edition, is a part of Human Kinetics’ Athletic Training Education Series. Featuring the work of respected authorities in athletic training, this collection of six outstanding textbooks, each with its own supporting instructional resources, parallels and expounds on the content areas in the accreditation standards of the NATA Education Council.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jason S. McVeigh, MS,PT, SCS, ATC, LAT (University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: One of six titles in the Athletic Training Education series, this book provides an extensive look at all aspects of therapeutic exercise, from the physiology of injury to examination, rehabilitation, and treatment decision making. This is an update of the 2005 edition.
Purpose: The author meets her objective of providing a book that can be used both as an educational tool by students and as reference by practicing clinicians.
Audience: The primary audience includes athletic training or physical therapy students learning the fundamentals of therapeutic exercise and how to apply them to a clinical setting. The author is a clinician and educator in athletic training and physical therapy.
Features: This fairly comprehensive book details not only the basic science of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology related to therapeutic exercise, but also extensively describes rehabilitation exercises, techniques, program designs, and functional progressions. Excellent diagrams, tables, and photographs will help visual learners. The book is well organized, and one of its best features is the way it presents objectives at the beginning of each chapter, and answers and explanations of each objective at the end of each chapter under "Key Concepts and Review."
Assessment: This book will be useful to anyone attempting to broaden their knowledge of the principles of therapeutic exercise. It offers students and beginning clinicians a useful reference for treatment strategies, rehabilitation program designs, and functional progression, and experienced clinicians a reference on the scientific principles underlying basic therapeutic exercise.
