Overview

Clinicians and researchers in physical therapy and other medical specialties lay out a range of approaches to help wounds heal. The 1995 second edition (first in 1990) is here revised to include a color section, integrate recommendations of the professional association's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, and add two chapters on electrical stimulation and six alternative interventions. The extensive glossary does not indicate pronunciation.

Editorial Reviews

Gail M. Huber
This is the second edition (first edition 1990) of one of the only physical therapy texts that provides a comprehensive approach to wound management. It reviews physiology, pathology, evaluation, and treatment. Originally intended for physical therapists, it is appropriate for any health professional involved in the management of wounds. Its coverage of physiology, evaluation, and prevention of wounds well serves most professionals working with this population. Yet the chapters on traditional physical therapy modalities are helpful to the physical therapy clinician. The specific application of physical agents to this population allows greater depth than most physical agent texts. The authors are nationally recognized authorities on the topics, and they have selected a varied group of excellent contributors. This new edition has been slightly reordered for a better flow of information. There are many photos, although some color pictures would be a plus. The detail in the table of contents has been improved, and there is an adequate index. The references are up-to-date and in some chapters have doubled in number. One strength of this text is the inclusion of case studies in many chapters to aid in clinical decision making. This book continues to be an outstanding contribution to the literature on wound management. It has been slightly reorganized for the better. It has clearly been updated. Its use in the classroom is beneficial because of its scientific basis, use of case studies, and the flow of physiology to evaluation to treatment. Information is provided so that clinicians can seek out resources to help in developing wound management programs.
