Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant
While other texts emphasize only technical application of the basic principles of orthopedic science, this text demands critical thinking and enhanced awareness of principles and application of the foundations of orthopedic science. Tailored to the needs of the PTA, each chapter builds on previous information and is complete with challenging review questions. The 2nd edition also includes a stronger emphasis on the fundamentals on exercise science with focus on tissue healing, orthopedic injury, and how to bridge the gap between basic science and physical healing. It also includes six new chapters and the addition of seven appendices.
