Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation, Volume 2: Scientific Foundations and Principles of Practice provides a thorough review of the basic science information concerning the tissues of the musculoskeletal system impacted by injury or disease, as well as the guiding principles upon which rehabilitation interventions are based. This volume divides information into two sections: scientific foundations and principles of intervention, providing readers with a guiding set of clinical foundations and principles upon which they can easily develop treatment interventions for specific impairments and functional limitations.

Editorial Reviews

"I have been practicing for 20 years and have never written to anyone I didn't know regarding a publication. However, I just wanted to thank you and congratulate you for your recent publication by Elsevier. I received the book on Friday and don't know which chapter to read next. It should be a mandatory text for physical therapy schools because of how it covers the fundamentals and basics. It is sometimes difficult to provide cutting edge material in books because of the publishing process, but you have done a great job. I plan on exposing the text to all students, physicians and health care professionals who cross my path. Since my last few years of practice have focused on pediatric sports medicine and childhood obesity, I will take the information and apply it accordingly to the growing and developing body. Thanks again for your wonderful contribution." "I would recommend this book as essential for fellow physiotherapists who are either near the completion of their course or recently qualified, as well as people studying similar subjects."Shula Baker, Physiotherapist, Mid Staffs NHS Foundation Trust"
