"Geriatric Physical Therapy" offers a comprehensive presentation of geriatric physical therapy science and practice.
Thoroughly revised and updated, editors Andrew Guccione, Rita Wong, and Dale Avers and their contributors provide current information on aging-related changes in function, the impact of these changes on patient examination and evaluation, and intervention approaches that maximize optimal aging.
Chapters emphasize evidence-based content that clinicians can use throughout the patient management process.
Six new chapters include: Exercise Prescription, Older Adults and Their Families, Impaired Joint Mobility, Impaired Motor Control, Home-based Service Delivery, and Hospice and End of Life.
Clinically accurate and relevant while at the same time exploring theory and rationale for evidence-based practice, it's perfect for students and practicing clinicians.
It's also an excellent study aid for the Geriatric Physical Therapy Specialization exam.
