Summary

The third edition of Therapeutic Electrophysical Agents: Evidence Behind Practice—revised and expanded, with new chapters and ancillary resources and tools on thePoint—is designed to give you the expertise with electrophysical agents you will need in your clinical practice. As with previous editions, the foundation of this book rests solidly and uniquely on evidence from experimental and clinical human trials.  The goal of this textbook is to offer all the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools you need to master the practice of therapeutic electrophysical agents.

The online resources include new unit conversion and dosimetric calculators, which allows students and practitioners to learn about prescribing treatment and what measurements to think about when dosing, without having to work through all the equations. Also included are new practice questions to help prepare for the Physical Therapy certification exam. These questions are similar to the ones students are likely to face on their board exams and will help build proficiency and competence.
