For physical therapy students, Huber and Wells (physical science and rehabilitation science, U. of Maryland School of Medicine, and rehabilitation services, U. of Maryland Medical Systems) present a textbook discussing the scientific principles of therapeutic exercise and their application to patient care. Contributors, who work in the fields of physical therapy and rehabilitation science in the US, incorporate research and illustrate concepts using ongoing patient cases from chapter to chapter. Discussions cover functional limitations and disability, then physical impairments. The material in the book is based on The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Second Edition. Basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology is necessary. A DVD-ROM contains video clips corresponding to chapter illustrations.
