Summary

Designed to meet the unique needs of physical therapist assistants, Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant, 3rd Edition focuses on critical thinking and helps you apply fundamental orthopedic principles in physical therapy interventions. Clear explanations cover basic concepts such as the PTA's role in physical assessment and flexibility; strength, endurance, and balance, along with the specifics of tissue healing; medications; gait and joint mobilization; and an introduction to biomechanics. It also describes the application of therapeutic interventions for many orthopedic conditions by region and affliction. Edited by two experienced clinicians, Gary A. Shankman and Robert C. Manske, and written by contributors who are experts in their respective fields, this is your one-stop source for PTA practice in orthopedics. Clear explanations of difficult concepts are provided by experienced, practicing clinicians who address the specific needs of the PTA. Comprehensive coverage provides a ''one-stop'' source for all things orthopedic, from core concepts related to orthopedics to information about the PTA's role in physical assessment and interventions, in-depth reviews of types of tissue healing, biomechanics, and pharmacology. A focus on critical thinking and application helps to prepare you for the treatment room and for the clinical practicum portions of the curriculum. Key terms and learning objectives begin each chapter, useful as ''checkpoints'' to which you can refer to ensure content comprehension and study effectively for examinations. Over 500 illustrations reinforce concepts and procedures, supplemented by summary tables and boxes. End-of-chapter review questions prepare you for the types of critical thinking you will be required to do in practice. Unique! End-of-chapter glossaries define key terms. Appendices provide a quick reference for information such as laboratory values, common medications, and associated mo
