Overview

For this fourteenth edition, experts from a wide range of clinical and academic backgrounds have produced chapters which give physiotherapy students a clearly laid out reference guide whilst at the same time encouraging them to problem solve and facilitate their learning in the process.

The numerous contributors, each specialists within their own fields, also add significantly to the overall content of the textbook. They increase the diversity between chapters and consequently the overall readability. The case-studies throughout are an excellent means of consolidating all the information and give students the confidence to apply their skills, out in practice.

For the first time the textbook includes a DVD ROM containing sections on musculoskeletal tests, massage and exercise, as well as high resolution graphics that can be used to aid revision student presentations and teaching purposes.
