“It contains well-organized, well-illustrated information pertaining to the prevention, examination, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries occurring in physically active people.”

SciTech Book News (March 2010)

“This book will be useful to anyone attempting to broaden their knowledge of the principles of therapeutic exercise. It offers students and beginning clinicians a useful reference for treatment strategies, rehabilitation program designs, and functional progression, and experienced clinicians a reference on the scientific principles underlying basic therapeutic exercise.”

Doody’s Book Review (4-star review)

This book is great. I highly recommend it for anyone going into the field of rehab or athletic training. There is so much information and great pictures of everything, but I never felt bogged down by the text. I'll keep this book for the rest of my career. Great reference tool.
