Therapeutic Modalities Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is an excellent resource for students or for experienced athletic trainers, physical therapists, or medical personnel. The numerous tables and illustrations and appendixes further enhance this friendlier edition. The 'at a glance' pages give the reader a quick overview of the text for each modality. Rather than using a cookbook method, the author encourages clinicians to use their own decision-making process to apply modalities appropriately, depending on the tissue depth and type, the injury, and the goal of therapy. An easy-to-follow reference as well as a suitable textbook for students. Rose L.

Book News Annotation:

For the third edition of this clearly organized and well illustrated volume, Starkey (Northeastern U., Boston) has added sections on fluidotherapy, hyperberic oxygen therapy, and magnet therapy (the latter because therapists get so many questions about this clinically unproven technique) and administrative procedure. Introductory chapters describe injury response, physiology and psychology of pain, treatment planning, and administrative concerns. The modalities of treatment, grouped in sections on cold and superficial heating agents, deep-heating agents, electrical stimulation, mechanical and light modalities, are described in sections that focus in sequential stages on the technology, the therapeutic objectives, and the applications.
