Physiotherapy in Orthopaedics: A Problem-solving Approach
Intended for use by all physiotherapy students and by newly-qualified physiotherapists working in orthopedics, this key reference presents a problem solving approach to orthopedics. With practical case studies and aims and objectives for each section, it encourages the student to focus on clinical problems to be solved, rather than on a medical diagnosis, and to be aware that knowledge and experience gained from dealing with one type of problem may often be transferred for application to others.
