Review:

"It is evident from the breadth of content and clinical relevance that the contributing authors bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the book....This is a useful reference for physical therapy instructors and students, introducing a comprehensive approach to the management of musculoskeletal dysfunction comparable in utility to other standards in the field. It also is a ready reference on the bookshelf of physical therapists new to or practicing in the realm of orthopedic physical therapy. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service (Doody's 2008-11-20)
