Summary

This valued resource for physical therapists provides a comprehensive overview of geriatric physical therapy for physical therapy students as well as practitioners. Thoroughly revised and updated, it provides the latest information on geriatric health care, such as managed care/Medicare/Medicaid, reimbursement issues, conservative pain management techniques, pharmacology, and new material on home care, osteoarthritis, nutrition, and family issues. It includes five new chapters: Ventilation and Respiratory Dysfunction in the Older Adult, Strength Training in the Elderly, Functional Training in the Community, Incontinence, and Prosthetics. * Shows application of concepts and encourage critical thinking by blending theory with real case examples. * Ensures compatibility of the text with the typical educational experience of the physical therapist and prepares the physical therapist for practice by using standard APTA terminology as expressed in the APTA document, A Description of Physical Therapist Patient Management, Parts I and II. * Gives student and clinician enough depth to understand processes and procedures, with its scientific approach and extensive referencing.
