The leading reference on the shoulder is now completely up to date with state-of-the-art rehabilitation and surgical techniques, five new chapters, new photographs, and many new contributors. It continues to provide valuable information on functional anatomy; the mechanics of movement; neurologic, special, and surgical considerations; evaluation; and treatment. Clinical application, while always an important feature of this title, has been strengthened for this new edition. Readers will also find new evidence-based evaluation methods and new treatment techniques and procedures.

  • The latest techniques and procedures focus on clinical applications and offer quick access to current information.
  • Provides new information, concepts, and evaluation of physical therapy and dysfunction based on the Guide, integrating these practice patterns with rehabilitation of the shoulder.


  • Companion CD-ROM includes an anatomy section, examination/evaluation (with video presentations and labeled illustrations), pathophysiology of the shoulder (with anatomy slides), manual therapy for treatment of shoulder injuries (with video presentations and labeled illustrations), and an image collection.
  • A new chapter on the practice of physical therapy presents the practice patterns found in the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and shows how these practice patterns can be applied.
  • New case studies throughout the book are based on the APTA's Guide and demonstrate real-world situations that the practitioner is likely to encounter.
  • New chapters on the "frozen shoulder," muscle length testing and electromyographic data for manual strength testing and exercises for the shoulder, shoulder instability, and total shoulder replacements keep readers up to date with the latest practice and research in these fast-changing areas.
