This practical guide connects the theory of neuroscience with real-world clinical application by utilizing first person accounts of neurological disorders and in-depth case studies. It also provides clear descriptions of a complete range of neurological disorders. Special features such as "at-a-glance" summaries, pathology boxes, and hundreds of full-color illustrations, enhance the learning experience and make it easy to master the fundamentals of neuroscience rehabilitation.
  • Systems approach
  • to neuroscience helps you develop a fuller understanding of concepts in the beginning of the text and apply them to new clinical disorders later in the text.

  • Five sections
  • : Cellular Level, Development, Systems, Regions, and Support Systems show how neural cells operate first, and then help you apply that knowledge while developing an understanding of systems neuroscience.

  • UNIQUE! An emphasis on neuroscience issues
  • critical for practice of physical rehabilitation such as abnormal muscle tone, chronic pain, and control of movement.

  • Evidence-based content
  • has been updated to reflect the most recent research.

  • Patient experience boxes
  • at the beginning of each chapter give insight from actual patients and the patients’ experiences with disorders discussed in the text.

  • Clinical notes
  • case studies
    include bulleted information relevant to the clinician.
  • NEW! Chapter on pain
  • will help students understand the physiological origins of pain and how it can be treated.
  • NEW! Color standardization in anatomy images

Now in its fourth edition and with a new title – Injection Techniques in Musculoskeletal Medicine – this successful step-by-step guide is a trusted resource used by a wide range of practitioners who have to deal with the management of painful joints and soft tissues, particularly in relation to sports and overuse injuries.

Area by area, guidance is given for each lesion on appropriate patient selection and delivery of the drug. Every technique has its own two-page spread containing a written description along with an anatomical illustration of the region and a photograph showing the anatomical landmarks for the injection.

This new edition is now accompanied by a Trainer available via www.injectiontechniquesonline.com. Please see log on for further details on how to access the virtual training guide - introduced by Stephanie Saunders herself - which covers the top most common injection techniques for each of the body regions. Through key text, videos, animations and interactive self-assessment, users are tested on their knowledge of anatomical landmarks, differential diagnoses, assessment criteria, drug selection and technical skill. Further access is given to a library of over 50 video clips showing supplementary injection techniques which clearly demonstrate the correct anatomical position for each needle insertion.

Illustrations, references, lesions, drugs, controversies! Chapters on Other Injectable Substances; Landmark and Image Guided Injections Latest evidence in injection therapy literature Adapted and simplified practical sections Access to Musculoskeletal Injection Techniques Trainer – a virtual aid to test your anatomical and technical skills on the top most common injections for the upper and lower limbs and spine – perfect for self-testing and honing your skills! Log on to www.injectiontechniquesonline.com to begin The Trainer also gives unlimited access to a bank of over 50 video clips demonstrating actual needle insertion for each lesion
Whether you’re preparing for the OCS or just want to brush up on your orthopedic knowledge, you don’t want to be without Placzek and Boyce’s new third edition of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy SECRETS.

Completely updated content reflects the latest physical therapy guidelines.NEW! Electronic-only format makes this study tool completely portable and accessible on a variety of devices such as the Kindle, Nook, iPad, and more.

Orthopedic Clinical Examination (Enhanced Version) provides current and future athletic trainers and physical therapists fundamental knowledge for developing proficiency at performing orthopedic evaluations and diagnosing conditions. Michael P. Reiman, who is internationally respected for his teaching, clinical practice, and research focused on orthopedic assessment and treatment methods, presents an evidence-based guide on the process of conducting tests and making diagnoses.

 

This enhanced e-book takes a structured approach, moving from broad to focused, that guides clinicians in making proper diagnoses. With this setup, the dynamic text and video combination presents specific components of the examination in the same sequence, ensuring repetition and improved consistency in learning. Screenings are used early in the examination sequence not only to determine the appropriateness of performing an orthopedic examination but also to rule out other potential pain generators and thereby narrow the focus of the examination.

 

Orthopedic Clinical Examination emphasizes evidence-based practice and therefore focuses on tests that are clinically relevant, providing students and clinicians with the most appropriate testing options rather than listing tests with no regard for their clinical value. Both treatment-based and pathological-based diagnostic styles are covered in detail so that readers will gain a thorough understanding of both approaches and be able to implement them separately or in tandem. In addition to body part examination, the text provides information on including subjective history, observation, diagnostic imaging, systems and neurological screening, and performance-based measures in making a complete diagnosis.

 

Orthopedic Clinical Examination includes learning tools that enhance comprehension and engagement:

 

-       Full-color photographs and illustrations demonstrate anatomy, patient conditions, and clinician positioning to serve as a visual reference and ensure proper testing techniques.

-       Fifty integrated videos provide students with visual demonstrations of assessments and treatments.

-       Color-coding graphics throughout chapters help readers quickly discern whether evidence supporting the reported finding is ideal, good, or less than good.

-       Overviews of common orthopedic conditions for each body region are in the 12 applied chapters.

-       Twenty-four case studies guide users in the proper questions to ask and steps to take in evaluation and diagnosis.

-       Links to abstracts of articles provide additional clinical learning scenarios.

 

With Orthopedic Clinical Examination, current and future clinicians will gain the knowledge and confidence they need in performing examinations and making diagnoses in clinical settings.
