Rheumatological Physiotherapy by Carol David
This book is one of four new books based on "Cash's Textbook" series. These books cover the physiotherapy techniques used in rheumatological, cardiovascular/respiratory, neurological and orthopaedic rehabilitation. They will be published as four separate volumes. Students will buy all four and qualified physiotherapists and teachers will buy in their area of interest. Originally published as a small, black and white, text in 1984, "Rheumatological Physiotherapy" is a completely new book and features a new larger format, 2-colour throughout and approximately 100 striking illustrations. Five sections cover: General Topics, Common Conditions, Less Common Conditions, The Hand and Foot in Specific Rheumatic Conditions and Paediatrics. The contents have developed to bring the book in line with current practice. A key feature of this student-friendly book is that it stands completely alone from orthopaedics and reflects the fact that rheumatological physiotherapy is a fast growing area of speciality. The book is well referenced and will be an invaluable tool for all physiotherapy students and practising physiotherapists with a special interest in rheumatology.
