Physical Therapy of the Shoulder book cover

Physical Therapy of the Shoulder

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.
