Basics of Orthopedic Physiotherapy

by Subhash M Khatri

This book, Basics of Orthopedic Physiotherapy, deals with physiotherapy. Physiological stress, load and movement are essential for the development, maintenance, and continuing health of the musculoskeletal tissues. Inactivity, faulty movement patterns and posture, trauma, or disease can result tissue changes with symptoms and dysfunction. Today, orthopedic physiotherapy is an essential and indispensable subject for physiotherapy students. There are enough and more books available on this subject by foreign authors. But, personally, I feel that there are very few books available on this subject by authors who can understand the needs of students in better way. The contents recorded herein have been carefully selected after intensive investigation and painstaking evaluation as the method of treatment. The organization of material is put up in an order of key points, overview, possible causes of the dysfunction and five clinical conditions. Emphasis is strongly on physiotherapy treatment.
