I am quite athletic and injured some muscles/tendons. I was in physical therapy and wanted to know more about why specific exercises were helping more than I had expected. This is a perfect book for the aging athlete who will start getting more and more minor problems from wear and tear, that seem to take longer and longer to heal. This book describes quite clearly and completely activies that help both in prevention and recovery. The knowledge it contains will help anyone heal as quickly as possible and avoid reinjury.

Format: Hardcover
Had broken arm (sports injury). I felt that my Kaiser medical professionals' explanations of injury, treatment and rehabilitation were not informative enough. Got this book and was very happy because it explains things THOROUGHLY! Am making good rehab progress because I'm doing exercises that the book shows and explains (exercises that my Physical Therapist hadn't shown or given to me).

The book is intended for professional Physical Therapists, but it is excellent for physically-active lay people who are willing to take some time and effort to learn about human physiology and some technical/medical terminology.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I also bought Trail Guide to the Body: How to Locate Muscles, Bones, and More (3rd Edition)--another good reference book.

I have purchased this exellent grand text that deals with the field of physical-therapy. I consider this book to be a total value of my money at the price I bought it (49$). I appreciate it's background coverage & focus on evidence additions.
As a physical-therapy student I clearly recommend this reference from the very start. I bought it a bit late (4th year).
If one Should seek a more in-depth coverage in the exercise physiology department, I recommend the following book, which is user friendly:
Exercise Physiology: Human Bioenergetics and Its Applications

This edition is actually an improvement on the old edition. There a many more charts graphs and tables as well as current information that the old edition just does not have. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
I am a PTA (physical therapist assistant) student and also a personal trainer and group exercise instructor. I bought this book because it looked very interesting and helpful for all three. I was thrilled to get it, there is so much information, all research-backed. An added bonus is that it is on my book list for next quarter. I've also recently learned that one of the authors, Carol Kisner, is often quoted for her cutting edge research. So while I haven't read the book cover to cover yet, it looks very good. It is important to know that information on exercise - therapeutic or otherwise is backed by current research - you don't want to pass on ineffective or dangerous techniques to your clients, patients, students or anyone else who puts their trust in you.
