Description : While other texts emphasize only technical application of the basic principles of orthopedic science, this text demands critical thinking and enhanced awareness of principles and application of the foundations of orthopedic science. Tailored to the needs of the PTA, each chapter builds on previous information and is complete with challenging review questions. The 2nd edition also includes a stronger emphasis on the fundamentals on exercise science with focus on tissue healing, orthopedic injury, and how to bridge the gap between basic science and physical healing.

Part IV: Gait and Joint Mobilization, provides information that will improve the PTA's ability to treat a patient with gait disability. Part V: Biomechanical Basis for Movement, deals with the basis of human movement. This section's presentation of introductory mechanics precedes orthopedic pathologies and therapeutic interventions by pulling together essential basics of anatomy, physiology, tissue healing, kinesiology, and principles of therapeutic exercise. Part VI: Management of Orthopedic Conditions, serves as the foundation of the text, covering the ankle, foot, and toes; the knee; the hip and pelvis; the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine; the shoulder; the elbow; and the wrist and hand.
