Format: Hardcover
I like two things about this book. The first is that it is very thorough and complete. Exercises, both stretching and strengthening, are included for basically every major muscle group or extremity motion. Furthermore, the book is divided up well enough that you can find what you're looking for fast.

Secondly, I like the fact that this book is evidence-based, meaning that it backs up what it suggests with references from the scientific literature. In fact, it's so good that it can be a great place to start a literature search from.

Know too that this book is mainly written for people who have some medical background of sorts, so if you're just an average reader looking for some workout exercises, this probably isn't your book. Rather, I feel like the book is better suited for athletic trainers, personal trainiers, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, massage therapists, and so on. Practitioners looking for more info on the shoulder might also want to check out Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff -for more detailed ex's on rotator cuff tear prevention and rehabilitation.

Format: Hardcover
The information in this textbook is great, but I feel like it's scattered willy-nilly around the book. I pretty much utilize the index as my table of context. I find this text frustrating to use, and more time consuming than some of the information is worth. I don't know what this new edition accomplished but it wasn't organization or making it reader friendly!

This is a really hard book to get through. The material is NOT difficult, but this book seems to present in the most difficult way possible. The chapters are not well organized, the language is not easy to get through, and there are better texts on the subject.

This book has a wealth of information on various exercises and modifications to exercises that are useful to PT's, PTA's or even personal trainers. I especially love the fact that it is divided into the different body parts and then further into the various muscle groups within the larger parts. It offers great information on the contraindicated movements based on types of injuries, surgeries, etc and that makes it a helpful tool for working with patients and clients alike.

This edition was more user friendly than the 5th edition. I like the colored pictures and better lists of indications and contraindications. Studying is a little easier on me with this edition.

Therapeutic Exercise is extremely well organized by Body System. Each chapter provides a well summarized review of related Anatomy linked to how structures work in movement patterns. Then it tops it all off with excellent detailed clinician oriented exercises geared to optimal rehab. from injury. Well worth your investment!

This text is not very easy to read and it does have some slight contradictions with the most updated evidence-based practice guidelines, but overall is a good resource. Smooth transaction.

I needed this book for PT School and Amazon provides brand new copies with all disks and/or access codes that you can get if you buy the book at your bookstore. Very pleased with Amazon and I will be sure to look at Amazon for my future textbook needs.
