Overview

Comprehensive Coverage of Therapeutic Modalities Used in a Clinical Setting

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

Therapeutic Modalities in Rehabilitation is a theoretically based but practically oriented guide to the use of therapeutic modalities for practicing clinicians and their students. It clearly presents the basis for use of each different type of modality and allows clinicians to make their own decision as to which will be the most effective in a given situation. Presented in full color, the text describes various concepts, principles, and theories that are supported by scientific research, factual evidence, and experience of the authors in dealing with various conditions.

The chapters in this text are divided into six parts:

Part I––Foundations of Therapeutic Modalities begins with a chapter that discusses the scientific basis for using therapeutic modalities and classifies the modalities according to the type of energy each uses.. Guidelines for selecting the most appropriate modalities for use in different phases of the healing process are presented.

Part II––Electrical Energy Modalities includes detailed discussions of the principles of electricity, and electrical stimulating currents, iontophoresis, and biofeedback.

Part III––Thermal Energy Modalities discusses those modalities which produce a change in tissue temperatures through conduction including thermotherapy and cryotherapy.

Part IV-Sound Energy Modalities discusses those modalities that utilize acoustic energy to produce a therapeutic effect. These include therapeutic ultrasound and a lesser known modality-extracorporal shockwave therapy.

Part V––Electromagnetic Energy Modalities includes chapters on both the diathermies and low-level laser therapy.

Part VI––Mechanical Energy Modalities includes chapters on traction, intermittent compression and therapeutic massage.

Each chapter ins Parts II-IV discuss: the physiologic basis for use, clinical applications, specific techniques of application through the use of related laboratory activities, and relevant individual case studies for each therapeutic modality.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel Higgins, DPT, OCS, ATC (Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy Associates)
Description: This is the fourth edition of an instructional book on the rationale and practical application of therapeutic modalities in a rehabilitation setting. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is so provide students and clinicians with a comprehensive tool to understand the appropriate use of modalities in a clinical setting. It will help clinicians in selecting a suitable modality and applying it safely. It is imperative that therapists have a thorough understanding of this material because of the frequency and variety of modalities used in rehabilitation. The author does a nice job of explaining this material.
Audience: The target audience includes anyone using modalities in a rehabilitation/healthcare setting, namely, athletic trainers, physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, physical therapy aides, and chiropractors. This would be an ideal book for students in any of these fields. The author has written numerous books and articles on this subject and is a leading instructor in the field.
Features: The book covers the basic science behind the modalities along with the basis for their use. It describes electrical stimulation, ultrasound, iontophoresis, biofeedback, heat and ice, as well as lesser known modalities such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy, low level laser therapy, and diathermy. Other chapters cover interventions such as spinal traction and therapeutic massage. The book appears to have updated color photos and color charts, along with multiple case studies, glossaries, and learning activities at the end of each chapter. While the information is referenced nicely, most of it is based on theory and, therefore, this is not an evidence-based book demonstrating the effectiveness of the modalities used for specific conditions.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive book designed for educating anyone using therapeutic modalities. It would be especially helpful to students in an academic setting because it provides a great deal of detail on a wide variety of modalities. This edition has been expanded, adding chapters on wound healing, electrodiagnostic testing, and extracorporeal shockwave therapy.
