Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Tiffany K. Frickert, PT, SCS, ATC (South Bay Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center )
Description: This book explores a myriad of modalities available to those in the field of rehabilitation. It covers some of the most commonly used modalities such as heat, cold, and electrical stimulation. Chapters on aquatic therapy, laser therapy, and magnet therapy are also included. Each chapter is dedicated to a description of the modality and its application in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide background information on the many modalities available for use by the physician and clinician. It allows the audience to gain a general insight into each modality which can then assist the physician/clinician in the decision-making process of selecting/recommending the best treatment of choice.
Audience: This book is written for physicians, residents, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and those in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Each chapter is written by highly knowledgeable people in the field.
Features: This is a compilation of current methods of treatment via modalities. It covers basic modalities such as heat and cold and broadens the field to include modalities such as laser, magnets, and unique taping techniques. This book is unique in that it addresses modalities in such a way that both the physician and clinician can determine the best treatment/modality of choice. Each modality is explained by giving historical background information on how it evolved, followed by a description of the modality and its indications for treatment. At times, it is difficult for the clinician to communicate directly with the physician; therefore, it is beneficial to have a book that will help the physician understand the purpose for using specific modalities and vice-versa. A special feature included in some chapters is a brief discussion of reimbursement/insurance coverage. In today's ever-changing healthcare field, it is important for the person issuing the treatment to keep abreast of reimbursement issues.
Assessment: Although this book covers a broad range of modalities, it does not necessarily cover the "specifics" for these modalities. Dosage, frequency, and duration of treatment are areas that are not covered extensively. A strong quality of this book is that it provides a connection for clinicians/physicians. It is different from typical modality books used only by the clinician. Books geared to the clinician have a tendency to cover fewer modalities but they delve into indications and rationale for proper settings more extensively. Two such books are: Physical Agents: A Comprehensive Text for Physical Therapists by Hecox et al. (Prentice Hall Health, 1994) and Thermal Agents in Rehabilitation, 3rd edtion, by Michlovitz (F.A. Davis, 1996). Overall, this book has unique qualities which will make it a nice addition to the current literature.
