Key Features

  • Clinical application case studies help readers apply what they learn in the classroom to real life situations.
  • Evidence-based content uses over 5,000 references to support the basic science information principles for rehabilitation interventions and provide the best evidence and physiological reasoning for treatment.
  • Over 180 tables and 275 text boxes highlight key points within the text for better understanding.
  • Expert editors David Magee, PhD, PT, James Zachazewski, DPT, SCS, ATC, Sandy Quillen, PT, PhD, SCS, FACSM and over 70 contributors provide authoritative guidance on the foundations and principles of musculoskeletal rehabilitation practice.
