Physiotherapy in Orthopaedics Summary

Physiotherapy in Orthopaedics: A Problem-Solving Approach by Karen Atkinson, MSc, GradDipPhys, CertEd, DipTP (Senior Lecturer, School of Health and Bioscience, University of East London, London)

The second edition to this successful textbook is for all physiotherapy students and newly qualified physiotherapists working in orthopaedics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The authors have drawn on their many years of experience and clinical work in various orthopaedic settings to help students with clinical reasoning when faced with apparently diverse patient problems. The content of this book moves from normal to abnormal and from simple to complex. Case studies and self-assessment sections encourage participation by the reader to help students develop a reasoned and logical approach towards the management of their orthopaedic patients. Chapter summaries emphasize key areas of importance. Case studies illustrate problem-solving approaches and demonstrate how to manage specific client groups. Objectives and prerequisites are included for each section, alerting readers to what they should know before and after reading. Reading and practice assignments include recommended prerequisite knowledge and experience. Well-illustrated text includes line diagrams, photographs, and radiographs to clarify important concepts. New chapters on Hydrotherapy and Gait present current knowledge on these areas. Chapters have been updated to include more information on the upper limb. Chapters on Decision Making and Clinical Reasoning in Orthopaedics and Gait Analysis in the Clinical Situation have been thoroughly updated and revised.

Physiotherapy in Orthopaedics Reviews

"I found this book to be very well organized and easy to read. The concepts were presented so that both students and seasoned clinicians would understand them and be able to apply them to practice. It achives its goal of helping students to focus on the patient and to realize that they have many and varied transferable skills they can draw upon in any situation. This text is a must-have in any orthopedic clinic." Advance for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants, November 2005
