Physical Therapy: Treatment of Common Orthopedic Conditions

by Neeraj D Baheti, Moira K Jamati

Anything that is concerned with muscles, ligaments and joints is considered orthopedic. This book “Physical Therapy Treatment of Common Orthopedic Conditions” is organized based on anatomical regions—upper extremity, spine, and lower extremity, and presents sixteen chapters on sixteen separate and current topics (medial tibial stress syndrome, plantar fascitis, patello-femoral syndrome, lumbar strain etc.). Some of these diagnoses, such as scapular dyskinesis, were not well known 10 years ago. There are new and innovative treatments applied to classic problems, such as patello-femoral syndrome and lumbar strain. Each chapter is uniformly organized to provide the reader with background information, basic anatomy and mechanics, clinical presentation by the patient, specific clinical examination, and treatments. While complimentary, alternative, and medical or surgical interventions are considered, the emphasis of each chapter, and of the work as a whole, remains on conservative physical therapy intervention. The concept for this book evolved from a desire to create a resource for practicing clinicians from which they can draw the best practice and evidence-based physical therapy treatment ideas in addressing the most common musculoskeletal disorders that they confront. Authors were encouraged to maximize the number of photos and supporting references throughout their work, to create an ease to follow guidelines for readers from which to draw ideas for intervention, as well as for readers to identify materials for further reference and future study.
