Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a must have book as it covers most of the topics within the course and has a very clear and concise layout. The chapters cover core subjects, for example musculoskeletal assessment, biomechanics, neurological physiotherapy, management of respiratory disease and many more. Throughout the authors make key points in each of the chapters which were found to be useful when revising for a particular area. There are also case studies in the book which allows the reader to consolidate the information and to apply their skills to a particular scenario. The book also contains a DVD Rom which contains revision aids, musculoskeletal tests and student presentations. This book will be very useful at university and throughout your physiotherapy career." - Charlotte Barrett, Physiotherapy Student, Cardiff University, UK. “Tidy’s Physiotherapy is one of my favourite texts and often my first point of reference… This book is well set out and easy to understand as it’s not too complicated. It covers the principles, clinical features, physiotherapy management and complications of common problems. I would recommend this book to any physiotherapy student.” - Mayuri Butchart, Physiotherapy Student, King's College London, UK. "A good all-round resource that provides the basics of physiotherapy for either the new student or for those with limited experience. As you become more experienced it’s use becomes more limited, but still would be of benefit for those who perhaps need a reminder of an area that they haven’t practised in for while." - Linda Wilkinson, Physiotherapy Student, University of Southampton "I would recommend this text book to all physiotherapy students, especially 1st years, as it is up to date and informative and clearly demonstrates theory into practice/clinical use. I know I will make much use of this book throughout the remainder of my course and as a starting point for further reading/research. A great book to have as part of a reference collection and will in no doubt be well read during my practice placements. The DVD is also a very useful aid with plenty of info that can be used for revision." Ms. N.L. Benson, 2nd Year Physiotherapy Student, University of Central Lancashire "This breadth of information is superb for the new physiotherapist. For the more experienced, it is a healthy reminder of aspects and breadth of scope to physiotherapy." Nick Downing, Physiotherapy Student, University of Birmingham

"The book has an impressive list of contributors. The first chapter, which deals with the responsibilities of being a physiotherapist, is very good and could be an essential read for all prospective and starting students."
