Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ben Kivlan, MPT (North Hills Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy)
Description: This concise and well depicted book reviews the purpose and clinical application of therapeutic exercise. The book reviews exercise principles and techniques for improving ROM, strength, power, endurance, aerobic fitness, balance, and trunk control.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a scientific basis and description of proper execution of prescribed therapeutic exercises. This is a worthy objective as many physical therapy curricula have less emphasis on intervention than examination. The authors meet their objectives by providing a concise and reader friendly text on therapeutic exercise.
Audience: The contributing authors are well-known and respected in their respective fields. They are targeting an audience of practitioners, specifically in orthopedic or sports medicine clinics.
Features: "The book covers a wide range of topics in therapeutic exercise. Strong chapters include those on PNF, closed-chain and plyometrics exercise, and balance training. The pictures on proper execution of exercises are helpful with a concise description of the purpose, position, and procedure captioned below. Most chapters also include pediatric and geriatric perspectives for age-appropriate exercise application. Case studies are a helpful feature that make the book more clinically applicable. Despite efforts to provide a thorough overview of therapeutic exercise, the book is more heavily geared towards an orthopedic/sports medicine clinician. Neuro, pediatric, and geriatric therapists may not find the book as useful. "
Assessment: This book is certainly user friendly and well organized. Although it would be nearly impossible to compile a complete text of therapeutic exercise, the authors provide a well-balanced and thorough overview of the application of therapeutic exercise. The contributing authors are well respected and academically qualified. They have done an excellent job of providing a current and scientific basis for the application of exercises. The illustrations and captions are helpful in understanding proper application and chapters on balance training, PNF, and plyometrics are particularly strong. Although books have been written on these topics individually, this book is concise and practical for an orthopedic or sports clinician.
