Therapeutic Programs for Musculoskeletal Disorders is a guide for musculoskeletal medicine trainees and physicians to the art and science of writing therapy prescriptions and developing individualized treatment plans. Chapters are written by teams of musculoskeletal physicians, allied health professionals, and trainees to underscore the importance of collaboration in designing programs and improving outcomes.
The book employs a literature-driven treatment approach to the common musculoskeletal problems that clinicians encounter on a daily basis. Each condition-specific chapter includes clinical background and presentation, physical examination, and diagnostics, followed by a comprehensive look at the rehabilitation program. Case examples with detailed therapy prescriptions reinforce key points. The book includes a bound-in DVD with downloadable patient handouts for most conditions.
Therapeutic Programs for Musculoskeletal Disorders Features:
- A concise but comprehensive approach to the conservative treatment of musculoskeletal disorders
- A focus on developing individualized treatment plans incorporating physical modalities, manual therapy, and therapeutic exercise
- A logical framework for writing effective therapy-based prescriptions for common limb and spine problems
- Case examples with detailed therapy prescriptions
- A targeted review of the associated literature in each condition-specific chapter
- A DVD with illustrated handouts covering home modalities and therapeutic exercises for key problems that can be provided to patients
- The first reference bringing together physicians, allied health professionals, and residents to provide an integrated foundation for improved team care utilizing an evidence-based approach to musculoskeletal rehabilitation
The fundamental textbook of orthopedic physical therapy is now in its thoroughly updated Fourth Edition. This new edition presents a "how-to" approach focusing on the foundations of manual therapy. More than 1,200 illustrations and photographs demonstrate therapeutic techniques. Extensive references cite key articles, emphasizing the latest research.
Reflecting current practice standards, this edition places greater emphasis on joint stabilization techniques and the role of exercise. Coverage includes new material on soft tissue manipulations and myofascial evaluation. This edition also features case studies covering real-life practice scenarios.
As medical imaging plays an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients, it has become vital for medical practitioners to have a thorough understanding of the many complicated techniques available. The Oxford Handbook of Medical Imaging is a practical quick-reference guide to all the modalities and techniques of imaging for medical and surgical conditions. Practical and easy to use, the handbook covers all common diagnoses, symptoms, and conditions. Medical and surgical emergencies are covered, along with explanations of the rationale behind each imaging techinque and the common questions likely to be asked. Fully illustrated throughout with example images from real cases, the indications, merits, and drawbacks of all the various modalities are explained in quick bullet points for ease of understanding and quick reference. Each chapter (where appropriate) is split into handy sections on differential diagnosis, presenting symptoms, and common conditions, so you will always have the most relevant information at your fingertips. This handbook is sure to be a constant companion for all radiographers and students, junior doctors, clinicians, and anyone who works with medical imaging.

Musculoskeletal Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM answers the call to what today’s physical therapy students and clinicians are looking for when integrating the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice as it relates to the musculoskeletal system in clinical care.
As a part of Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Musculoskeletal Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM is edited by Dr. Elaine Rosen and Dr. Sandra Rusnak-Smith in a user-friendly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the Guide language, but also parallels the patterns of the Guide.
In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, imaging, and pharmacology is provided. Each pattern then details two to five diversified case studies coinciding with the Guide format. The physical therapist examination, including history, systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed.
Sample Cases in Some of the Practice Patterns Include:
-Primary Prevention/Risk Reduction for Skeletal Demineralization: A post-menopausal female, previous smoker and non exerciser; a patient with osteopenia due to prolonged glucocorticoid steroid use; a marathon runner with osteopenia of the femoral necks
-Impaired Posture: A patient with impaired posture and radicular symptoms; a patient with excessive foot pronation causing pain up the chain, a patient with Scheuermann’s Disease
-Impaired Joint Mobility, Motor Function, Muscle Performance, and Range of Motion Associated with Connective Tissue Dysfunction: A patient with complex regional pain syndrome of the foot/ankle; a patient with temporomandibular joint dysfunction; a patient with fibromyalgia syndrome
-Impaired Joint Mobility, Motor Function, Muscle Performance, and Range of Motion Associated with Joint Arthroplasty: A patient with a hybrid total hip arthroplasty; a patient with bilateral total knee arthroplasties; a patient with a total shoulder arthroplasty; a patient with rheumatoid arthritis post MCP joint implant arthroplasties and arthrodesis of the PIP joints; a patient post ligament reconstruction tendon interpositional arthroplasty
-Impaired Joint Mobility, Motor Function, Muscle Performance, and Range of Motion Associated with Bony or Soft Tissue Surgery: A patient with dementia and a femur fracture; a patient 6 weeks post tibia and fibula fracture; a patient with a rotator cuff repair; a patient one week post ACL reconstruction
At long last, Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Dr. Elaine Rosen, and Dr. Sandra Rusnak-Smith have created a book that will integrate the parameters of the Guide as it relates to the musculoskeletal system, into the practice arena, that not only covers the material but also allows for a problem-solving approach to learning for educators and students.
