About this item

This textbook explains the use of therapeutic exercise for musculoskeletal injuries. It first covers concepts related to rehabilitation, healing, physics, and examination and assessment, then outlines the elements of therapeutic exercise, such as motion, strength, proprioception, and performance; general applications to posture evaluation, gait analysis, aquatic exercises, and manual therapy, as well as equipment and physiological and injury factors; and applications to specific body parts. This edition has been updated with a streamlined presentation, color figures instead of line drawings, chapter reorganization, new chapters on sacroiliac joints and the skeleton, a separate chapter on the spine, new topics and expanded information, more evidence-based information, and fewer case studies, as well as online access to 40 videos demonstrating techniques.
