Orthopaedics for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides the physical therapist assistant (PTA) student with a broad overview of orthopaedics as it relates to physical therapy. This is the first book to combine kinesiology, orthopedic management, and therapeutic exercise; tying in the anatomy and kinesiology to the examination and pathology of each of the joints. This comprehensive text describes the anatomy and biomechanics of each area of the spine, pelvis, and TMJ. Working from this foundation, detailed explanations on the re-evaluation and treatment of each of the various areas are given with an emphasis on techniques that are evidence-based. In addition to the usual topics that cover each of the joints, this book has separate chapters on pediatrics, geriatrics, manual therapy, and women#x19;s health.Each chapter includes learning objectives, key terms, key point boxes, a summary, suggested readings, references, and end-of-chapter review questions to test the students understanding of the material. To help illustrate topics, case studies are included as well as details about both the commonly encountered pathologies, and the more serious ones that can mimic a musculoskeletal dysfunction. The book contains over 700 illustrations and tables, including line drawings and photographs, and follows the terminology of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.Instructor Resources: PowerPoint Slides, TestBank, Image Bank with color photosStudent Resources: Companion Web site
