Appleton & Lange, Jan 1, 1987 - Electric stimulation - 295 pages
Updated and reorganized, the third edition of this popular book uses a problem-oriented approach to present the principles of electrical stimulation, physiology and useful instrumentation as they relate to electrotherapy. This comprehensive text focuses on the clinical effectiveness of electrotherapeutic modalities and their physiologic impact on function and healing. Featuring new case studies and review questions, it also includes new material on the use of electrical stimulation for tissue repair and pain management, improving muscle performance, and increasing functional activity. Physical therapy students and practitioners.
