Review

"This book will be helpful to students and clinicians in looking up useful information quickly and easily; and will
therefore assist the process of making clinical decisions
based on grounded rationale and evidence."
Gladys Cheing, International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, November 2008, Vol 15, No 11 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Michelle H Cameron, PT, OCS, Guest Lecturer, Graduate Program of Physical Therapy, Samuel Merritt College, Oakland, CA. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Michelle H. Cameron, MD, PT, a neurologist and physical therapist, is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University and at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Portland, Oregon.

Dr. Cameron provides clinical neurology care to people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and related disorders, and is currently developing her research on balance and falls in this population. She has carried out a number of studies in this area and also contributes to clinical trials of various MS treatments.

When not caring for patients or carrying out research, Dr. Cameron teaches continuing education courses on the use of physical agents in rehabilitation. Her discussions of physical agents bring together current research and practice, in the context of today's health care environment, to provide the decision-making and hands-on tools needed to support optimal patient care.

Dr. Cameron is the author of Physical Agents in Rehabilitation: From Research to Practice, now in its third edition, and is the co-editor, together with Linda G. Monroe, MPT, of both Physical Rehabilitation: Evidence-Based Examination, Evaluation and Intervention, and its companion edition, Physical Rehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant. Her books have been translated into six languages.

I got this book in place of th newest edition, to save some money. It's pretty much the same. All they changed were the pictures. In color instead of black and white. Plus the end of chapters have some review sort of thing that this book doesn't have. But it saved me money and its the same information. Received in good shape for a good price.

This book was easy to read and understand. As you know info on electrical impulses can be boring. It primarily focused on uses in Physical Therapy or lower extremity issues. I wished it also included upper extremity cases since I'm an Occupational Theraist.

A tremendous resource for a wide range of modalities, electrical equipment, and mechanical agents. The parameters offered are useful for current clinical practice. The information offered considers current evidence and best PT practice.

I do not like this book at all but I had to purchase it for class. It is very hard to follow and understand. There are many large paragraphs that you read and then at the end of it, it tells you "None of these studies have been proven to be true" Well then why did I just waste my time reading about them?
