Detailed and evidence-based, this text focuses on musculoskeletal pathology and injury with descriptions of current and practical rehabilitation methods. PATHOLOGY AND INTERVENTION IN MUSCULOSKELETAL REHABILITATION provides everything you need to create and implement rehabilitation programs for your patients with musculoskeletal disorders due to injury, illness, or surgery. Each intervention includes a rationale, pathology and related problems, stages of healing, evidence in literature, and clinical reasoning considerations. This is the third volume of the new four-volume musculoskeletal rehabilitation series anchored by "Magee's Orthopedic Physical Assessment, 5th Edition."
Dedicated and focused information on the specific pathologies most often seen in the clinic, as well as the best methods for intervention for the different areas of the body, minimizes duplication of information by referring you to other titles in the Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Series for basic scientific information regarding inflammation, healing, tissue deformation, and the development of muscular strength and endurance.
Trusted experts in musculoskeletal rehabilitation, along with internationally recognized contributors, present the best evidence behind contemporary interventions directed toward the treatment of the impairments and functional limitations associated with acute, chronic, and congenital musculoskeletal conditions occurring across the lifespan.
Evidence-based content, with over 4,000 references, supports the scientific principles for rehabilitation interventions, providing the best evidence for the management of musculoskeletal pathology and injury.
NEW! The Skin and Wound Healing chapter looks at the numerous tools available to assist in objectively monitoring and treating a patient with an acute or chronic wound.
