From the Publisher
4 Stars

This is a unique and informative guide to therapeutic programs for patients with common musculoskeletal disorders. Along with evidence-based treatment plans for specific musculoskeletal disorders, it also provides guidance on writing detailed therapy prescriptions, an extremely important tool that aids in the communication between musculoskeletal medicine practitioners and allied healthcare professionals. The book is well-structured, easy to navigate, and provides appropriate figures and tables, as well as helpful patient handouts. This will be a very useful resource for musculoskeletal medicine practitioners and trainees. -- Doody's Reviews

"The addition of appropriate case studies and detailed sample therapy prescriptions make this book unique. Recommended." - Choice, Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, August 2013

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel K Chu, M.D.(Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This book presents conservative treatment and therapeutic exercise options for common musculoskeletal disorders. Following an introductory section that covers the basics of musculoskeletal rehabilitation, there are 10 sections divided by anatomical location. Chapters in each section contain background information about the condition, specific rehabilitation techniques and exercises, a summary, a sample case, and a sample therapy prescription.
Purpose: The primary purpose is to provide guidance for writing effective therapy prescriptions and developing individualized, evidence-based treatment plans. It is extremely important for practitioners managing and treating patients with musculoskeletal disorders to understand the evidence and literature supporting various treatment plans and be able to communicate effectively with allied health professionals when writing therapy prescriptions.
Audience: "The audience includes musculoskeletal medicine trainees and practitioners in physical medicine and rehabilitation and sports medicine, as well as family medicine, internal medicine, orthopedics, and neurology. The authors include experienced and well-respected practitioners in the field of musculoskeletal medicine. "
Features: "Each chapter uses a standardized format, starting with an introduction to the specific musculoskeletal disorder, the evidence-based therapeutic modalities, manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, specialized techniques, and home exercise program recommendations, as well as a summary with a sample case and a sample therapy prescription. Chapters also contain figures that demonstrate specific exercises. The sample therapy prescription is an innovative and helpful way to provide information and guidance for musculoskeletal medicine practitioners. The book comes with a DVD that contains a PDF file of patient handouts, which provide an overview of the disorder, home remedies, rehabilitation program with accompanying figures, and follow-up information. "
Assessment: This is a unique and informative guide to therapeutic programs for patients with common musculoskeletal disorders. Along with evidence-based treatment plans for specific musculoskeletal disorders, it also provides guidance on writing detailed therapy prescriptions, an extremely important tool that aids in the communication between musculoskeletal medicine practitioners and allied healthcare professionals. The book is well-structured, easy to navigate, and provides appropriate figures and tables, as well as helpful patient handouts. This will be a very useful resource for musculoskeletal medicine practitioners and trainees.
