Physical Therapy Prescriptions for Musculoskeletal Disorders will assist the physician in understanding the physical therapy process once a prescription is written. To achieve this, typical cases of musculoskeletal conditions are followed from the original work-up to the physical therapy prescription. This includes a clear and concise presentation of a case, results of the physical exam, and the exercises that will be used during physical therapy. Each case also provides the actual prescription form, filled out appropriately for that condition.
This book will:
Provide an overview of diagnosis of the pathologies
Describe how to write an appropriate physical therapy prescription
Illustrate what is actually done in physical therapy once a prescription has been written
Provide detailed pictures of exercises performed in physical therapy

Key Features Include:

Over 80 images depicting physical therapy exercises
This practical manual is the perfect resource for physiatrists, orthopaedists, rheumatologists, neurologists, family practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, residents, and students.
