Summary

The ideal departmental procedural manual, this book guides readers through application techniques for the various physical therapy agents. Begins with brief general comments regarding the use of electromedical equipment; presents a brief summary of the physics of production and physiological effects of each agent along with step-by-step instructions on how to use equipment. Keeps instructions generic enough to apply to a wide variety of equipment currently available. Contains a diagnostic checklist with all major diseases and syndromes. Offers more extensive coverage of all types of calculations than any other book. Provides reading lists for each agent. Is conveniently spiral-bound for ease of use. For physical therapy assistants and athletic trainers looking to learn more or refresh their skills.
