Two-volume set contains:

  1. The Concise Guide to Physiotherapy: Volume 1 Assessment and
  2. The Concise Guide to Physiotherapy: Volume 2 Treatment.

A blend of resources providing an insight into the ‘non core’ areas of practice, enabling the individual to prepare ahead or refresh knowledge in order to feel confident about managing patients in practice areas not previously encountered.

Together, both volumes are designed to assist undergraduate physiotherapy students and new graduates in confidently assessing and treating patients in a range of physiotherapy specialties outside of the ‘core’ areas of practice. Areas covered include paediatrics, geriatrics, mental health and rheumatology.

Valuable content is easily accessible in a small portable format which will be an invaluable reference during placements or practice. Each chapter provides a concise overview of the philosophy and the specific assessment processes for each of the 17 practice specialties.

A wealth of online learning resources are also available with both Volumes, these include access to case studies, multiple-choice questions and a reference list for each chapter. In addition there is a bank of downloadable photographs and line drawings relating to each of the 17 chapters.

Both volumes used together will be an indispensable tool for any physiotherapist.
