Description : "Like the first edition, this text was designed to present an introduction and broad background on the profession (Part I) and practice (Part II) of physical therapy. The introductory nature of the content continues to focus on the student beginning a PT, PTA, or health-related educational program. Nevertheless, major updates and revisions were made to describe the current conditions within our profession. All chapters were revised to reflect the concepts and terminology of the GUIDE TO PHYSICAL THERAPIST PRACTICE, particularly the elements of the Patient/Client Management Model". (Preface).
