The third edition of Introduction to Splinting: A Clinical Reasoning and Problem-Solving Approach helps readers master the basic theory, principles, and techniques of splinting needed for clinical practice. Using a combination textbook/workbook format, it integrates theory and technical knowledge with hands-on learning features that equip readers with essential clinical knowledge, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving skills associated with splinting. Comprehensive coverage presents the fundamentals of splinting that a therapist needs to know. Self-quizzes, case studies, and lab exercises help readers bridge the gap between learning and practice and apply what theyve learned to real-life situations. Key terms, chapter outlines, and review questions highlights specific information that the reader can expect to learn from each chapter. Combined textbook/workbook format reinforces information as it is learned and encourages practical application of concepts.

Lists of key terms for each chapter help familiarize the reader with relevant terminology. Two new case studies have been added to each chapter, strengthening the books clinical application focus. Companion CD contains video clips demonstrating how to fabricate specific splints. Four new chapters cover topics such as occupation-based splinting, tools, processes, and techniques of splinting, and splints for the elbow, shoulder, and fingers. Chapters are divided into three units: splinting foundations; splints for conditions and populations; and topics related to splinting. A new appendix directs readers to helpful online resources and vendors.
