Musculoskeletal Interventions, 3rd Edition, is a comprehensive guide to the system considerations, design, implementation, and progression of rehabilitation programs for musculoskeletal injuries and dysfunction. Encompassing many aspects of musculoskeletal rehabilitation, with contributions from many renowned authors, it focuses on the practical application of theory in a clinical setting, making it valuable to both students and experienced physical therapists. Musculoskeletal Interventions features an easy-to-follow body region and functional approach to intervention strategies and is logically divided into five sections:

Treating Physiologic Impairments During Rehabilitation
  • Presents information on various physical impairments that may need to be addressed as part of the rehabilitation process
The Tools of Rehabilitation
  • Provides an overview of important rehabilitation tools and strategies
  • Delivers detailed coverage of how these interventions should be incorporated into a rehabilitation program to achieve the individualized treatment goals for patients with musculoskeletal pathologies
Intervention Strategies for Specific Injuries
