Essentials Of Orthopaedics & Applied Physiotherapy
Elsevier India, 1999 - 592 pages
Orthopaedic Physiotherapy is one of the major specialties of the art and the science of physiotherapy. It plays a vital role in the rehabilitation of the physically handicapped. There are a large number of books on orthopaedics and physiotherapy, but they all deal with these subjects as a separate entity. There is not even a single book that provides the overall picture of the total therapeutic management. This book, the first of its kind, fills the gap.
