Prepare for practice with the book tailored specifically for physical therapist assistants! Physical Rehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides a clear, easy-to-read, evidence-based guide to the PTA's role in patient management, covering the core concepts related to physical rehabilitation and emphasizing the PTA's role in intervention. A treatment-oriented focus addresses each of the four categories of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Preferred Practice Patterns: musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, and integumentary. The final section of the book addresses interventions which overlap many practice patterns. Written by rehabilitation experts Michelle Cameron, MD, PT and Linda Monroe, MPT, in consultation with Susan Schmidt, a practicing PTA, and Carla Gleaton, the director of a PTA education program, this text will be a valuable resource both in the classroom and in professional practice. Comprehensive, evidence-based coverage of rehabilitation includes sections on pathology; examination; evaluation, diagnosis, and prognosis; clinical signs, and intervention -- emphasizing the PTA's role in intervention. Unique! A consistent, organized approach covers physical therapy intervention by disorder, with full discussions of each condition found in a single chapter. Format follows the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd Edition so you become familiar with the terminology used in therapy practice. Clinical Pearls highlight key information. Unique! Full-color illustrations clearly demonstrate pathologies and interventions. Case studies with discussion questions guide you through specific patient interactions to build your clinical reasoning skills. Glossaries in each chapter define key terms to build your clinical vocabulary. Unique! Student resources on the companion Evolve website enhance your learning with vocabulary-building exercises, boards-style practice test questions, examples of commonly used forms, and references from the book linked to Medline.
