Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel J. Cipriani, MEd, PT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This book is devoted entirely to the thoracic spine and rib cage, focusing on the unique musculoskeletal problems associated with this region. Because most textbooks that are related to the spine focus mainly on the lumbar or cervical region, this is a welcome addition to the medical literature. It includes comprehensive discussions related to the anatomy and biomechanics of the thoracic region along with a thorough description of evaluation procedures. Treatment strategies are covered as well.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the healthcare practitioner with a comprehensive reference for the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal problems involving the thoracic region. Considering the void in the literature regarding this topic area, this text will be very useful to the practicing clinician.
Audience: This book is well suited for the practicing clinician in the areas of physical therapy and chiropractic. The comprehensive description of thoracic evaluation and differential diagnosis makes this text useful to the physician assistant as well. Students in the professional curriculums of physical therapy and physical therapy assistant may find this text to be too focused. Instructors, however, will find this to be an excellent reference to supplement kinesiology and musculoskeletal texts.
Features: A wide variety of contributing authors provides for very thorough discussions on each subject item related to the thoracic cage. The text is well organized, especially in the areas of evaluation and treatment strategies. Photographs are used extensively to support the text material. Full bibliographies are provided for each chapter.
Assessment: This book will make an excellent reference source for instructors in physical therapy and chiropractic curriculum, as an adjunct to general textbooks related to kinesiology/biomechanics, musculoskeletal problems, and therapeutic procedures. The thoracic region is often underrepresented, and this book will help to fill this void. Practicing clinicians will especially find this book useful as a reference for their everyday practice.
