The book "Understanding Osteoarthritis & its Management" largely focuses on physiotherapy and its importance in the management of osteoarthritis. The functional limitations seen in osteoarthritis cases results from musculoskeletal impairments. These musculoskeletal impairments may lead to impairments of other systems, such as decreased cardiovascular endurance for functional activities. The physical therapist is well suited to evaluate and treat these impairments, remediate the functional limitations, and educate the patient in self-management skills to avoid unnecessary disability. Rehabilitation of the individual with arthritis is most often directed towards restoring or maintaining joint mobility and strength; and emphasizes functional retraining and health promotion. Any orthopedic condition can be treated by medication or surgery to an extent of fifty percent and the remaining fifty percent is by physiotherapy. If skillfully executed by trained persons, physiotherapy can give excellent results in treating orthopedic disorders and in postoperative rehabilitation. The main aim of the book is to provide undergraduate students of physiotherapy, the protocol-wise treatment and rehabilitation that should be followed while treating a patient with osteoarthritis. The book covers the recent advances in the condition and the range of exercises which can be followed.
