This first edition research book is specifically geared toward rehab professionals, including physical therapists and athletic trainers. It brings clinical application into the interpretation of evidence-based research, which is missing from many of the books on the market. As practicing according to evidence becomes increasingly important, an ability to interpret and apply knowledge for use in the clinical setting will be crucial.
