Belanger's third edition of Therapeutic Electrophysical Agents: Evidence Behind Practice, is still the best book for teaching evidence-based therapeutic agents. This is the only book on the market to make significant use of evidence in discussing electrophysical agents. In this new edition, the evidence-based tables have been enhanced to make them easier to use and understand. New clinical cases have been added to each of the therapeutic agent chapters. These cases teach students how to apply what they are learning and encourage them to develop critical thinking skills. The online resources include new unit conversion and dosimetric calculators, which allows students and practitioners to learn about prescribing treatment and what measurements to think about when dosing, without having to work through all the equations. Also included are new practice questions to help prepare for the Physical Therapy certification exam. These questions are similar to the ones students are likely to face on their board exams and will help build proficiency and competence.

Much more than an update to the Evidence-Based Guide to Therapeutic Physical Agents, this Second Edition, now titled Therapeutic Electrophysical Agents: Evidence Behind Practice, enables you to translate your learning into practice. The Second Edition expands and strengthens the concept of evidence-based practice for the study and application of therapeutic electrophysical agents (EPAs) in the fields of physical rehabilitation, physical medicine, and sports therapy. It also reflects the latest terminology and standards from the American Physical Therapy Association's Guide to Physical Therapy Practice and the Disablement Model. The new pedagogical approach includes learning objectives beginning each chapter, critical thinking questions ending each chapter, and evidence-based case scenarios to guide your studies and help you apply your knowledge.

Motor control is a relatively young field of research exploring how the nervous system produces purposeful, coordinated movements in its interaction with the body and the environment through conscious and unsconscious thought. Many books purporting to cover motor control have veered off course to examine biomechanics and physiology rather than actual control, leaving a gap in the literature. This book covers all the major perspectives in motor control, with a balanced approach. There are chapters explicitly dedicated to control theory, to dynamical systems, to biomechanics, to different behaviors, and to motor learning, including case studies. Reviews current research in motor control Contains balanced perspectives among neuroscience, psychology, physics and biomechanics Highlights controversies in the field Discusses neurophysiology, control theory, biomechanics, and dynamical systems under one cover Links principles of motor control to everyday behaviors Includes case studies delving into topics in more detail

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Therapeutic Kinesiology has been awarded the prestigious 2013 American Medical Illustrators Award to Excellence! Therapeutic Kinesiology provides practical and relevant applications of the study of human movement to the practice of massage and bodywork. One of the first kinesiology texts specifically geared to massage therapists, it’s actually three books in one: a kinesiology text, a palpation text, and a body mechanics text. Focused on experiential learning, it is replete with self-study exercises — including many specifically designed to help practitioners avoid work-related injuries. It offers clear, friendly, and easy-to-read coverage of the skeletal, muscular, and neuromuscular systems; joint motion; biomechanics; posture and gait; basic palpation skills, the thorax and respiration; the ankle, foot, knee, hip, pelvis, spine, head, neck, shoulder girdle, arm, hand, and more. Hundreds of color photos and anatomical images appear throughout, along with many practical tips — including expert guidance on client education.
