This new book is based on Cash's Textbook of Orthopaedics and Rheumatology. It covers General Topics, Orthopaedic Disorders, Paediatric Conditions, and Treatment Options. Orthopaedic Physiotherapy has been completely updated and now features a new larger format, 2-colour throughout, and more than 270 illustrations. The contents have been updated to bring this book totally up to date with current practice. An important feature of this new well-written book is the section on treatment options. Seven chapters cover the entire range of new and established treatment options, such as isokinetic dynamometry, and introduces NAGS, SNAGS, and MWMs.
