The text consists of foundational knowledge, theoretical models, empirical research and application of material to physical therapy practice. Evidence-based practice is emphasized through a mix of formalist and reader-response approaches.

Wellness and Physical Therapy is written to assist the physical therapy student in learning the entry level physical therapy accreditation requirements related to wellness and to provide a further exploration of wellness and health promotion. This one-of-a-kind textbook addresses wellness within the realm of the Normative Model of Physical Therapist Professional Education: Version 2004, and CAPTE.
