Essentials of Orthopedics for Physiotherapists

by John Ebnezar

The book has been thoroughly revised and updated. In fact, it has taken more time to revise this book than when I brought out the first edition. It has been upgraded to a multicolor format. For the first time you will find real clinical photographs in the text. This will help you to understand orthopedic conditions better. Good surgical photographs have been put wherever necessary. This will be a great boon for the physiotherapy students for they seldom get a chance to witness live surgeries in their career. Getting an insight into the operative pictures will help them to understand the treatment of orthopedic conditions better and this will make them better physiotherapists. Lots of new X-rays have been added to enhance and enrich their clinical knowledge. Plenty of orthopedic techniques like reduction of a fracture or a dislocation have been shown for their understanding of the treatment of common orthopedic conditions. Two new chapters have been added on Arthroplasty and Arthroscopy. All the attractive features of the first edition like short summaries, mnemonics, anecdotes, etc. have been retained as it has been very much appreciated by the physiotherapy fraternity.
