Revised and updated for its second edition, this popular manual is a concise yet complete quick reference for the evaluation and treatment of physical disabilities.

Experts from leading institutions present very practical, problem-oriented guidelines in 23 topic areas. Topics are listed alphabetically by general diagnosis and chapters have a consistent, easy-to-follow organization.

This edition's brand-new chapter on manual medicine covers evaluation and diagnosis; formulation of the physical therapy prescription; follow-up; stretch vs. strength vs. limitation of activities; and time frames for each step of the treatment plan. Other new chapters cover pediatric rehabilitation, geriatric rehabilitation, and prosthetics and orthotics.
