Many themes and topics related to physiotherapy are addressed, making the scope of this book much broader than a traditional dictionary.
In-depth entries are provided for musculoskeletal and spinal terms, respiratory terms, neurological terms, psychosocial terms, electrotherapy terms, research terms, and general medical and surgical terms, as well as academic terms.
A helpful appendix describes how to write academic essays and assignments.
Common medical abbreviations, prefixes, and suffixes are listed for convenient reference.
Vibrant illustrations clarify complex concepts and techniques.
