Therapeutic Exercise: Moving Toward Function, Third Edition provides a conceptual framework for learning how to make clinical decisions regarding the prescription of therapeutic exercise--from deciding which exercise(s) to teach, to how to teach them, to the dosage required for the best possible outcome.

Throughout this textbook, readers will learn how to treat, with the use of therapeutic exercise and related interventions, the impairments that correlate to functional limitations and the disability and to work toward the most optimal function possible. Highlights of this Third Edition include case studies in each chapter and more than 200 new photographs and illustrations.

Exciting Textbook.! March 29, 2011
I bought this new textbook from ecampus, it is an excellent all around manual for the physical therapy student or clinician. It concisely and effectively covers all of the major areas of orthopedics with a review of neurological function and injuries. Hall uses well laid-out diagrams to provide a basis for diagnosis and then treatment with therapeutic exercise. This textbook is a great reference to add to your textbook shelf.
