Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


For more than 25 years, Dr. Charles Ciccone has been the forerunner in helping physical therapists explore how medications affect patient rehabilitation.

And he’s been updating his text ever since to make sure you stay on the brink of science and innovation as drug changes occur every day and expectations for your role continually evolve.

With the 5th Edition, you’ll find even more case studies, review questions, information on vitamins and supplements, and expanded coverage of chemotherapy and cancer treatments.
