Understand how a patient's conditions might affect physical therapy and outcomes so that you can design safe and effective interventions. The only pathology textbook written specifically for physical therapists, Pathology: Implications for the Physical Therapist, Third Edition, offers guidelines, precautions, and contraindications for interventions with patients who have musculoskeletal or neuromuscular problems as well as other conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or pancreatitis. Learn about the cause of these conditions, the pathogenesis, medical diagnosis and treatment, and most importantly, the special implications for the therapist. In addition to addressing specific diseases and conditions, this text emphasizes health promotion and disease prevention strategies and covers issues with implications for physical therapy management, such as injury, inflammation, and healing; the lymphatic system; and biopsychosocial-spiritual impacts on health care. With this practical and evidence-based text, now enhanced with full-color illustrations and the latest research, you'll know what to factor into your clinical decisions to achieve the best outcomes for your patients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent go to for PT students and PT's May 7, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used this book during my clinical rotations and as preparation for both my exits and boards. Full of good information including implications for the rehab specialist, things that you definitely need to know because let's face it, you can't know everything when you graduate.

When I bought this book, it was $87.10 and now it is $100.00. What?!!? no.

3.0 out of 5 stars s. Bemis February 7, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Fairly good - however, very little reference as to problem solving or the appropriate follow-up care with differential diagnoses commonly seen the PT arena. I would put it in the same cateogry as an Internal Medicine reference book for MD's - not reference friendly for PT's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absoulte must for PT School February 6, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for PT school and I have to say it was essential. I used this book for multiple semesters on a weekly basis. The content is fantastic. It is clear, consice, and very well organized. I'd say over my 3 years of working on my doctorate, that this book was one of the most useful that I had on my shelf. 5+ stars
