This book is for therapists involved in exercise therapy for the prevention and treatment of disease. It covers exercise assessment, current prescription guidelines, precautions, exercise design and clinical case studies. The book also includes exercises to increase strength, power, local muscle endurance, range of movement and aerobic capacity and will be relevant to all areas of therapy practice. In addition to the general guidelines, considerations for exercise groups and exercise at home as well as exercise in special patient populations are addressed.

Review:

"In this text, the latest in a series of physiotherapy pocketbooks, Angela Glynn and Helen Fiddler have set out to provide the reader with a quick reference guide for the safe and effective prescription of therapeutic exercise across a range of common clinical conditions. Importantly, the book should also raise a number of key questions concerning the role of the physiotherapist in the prescription of therapeutic exercise. This is something for which the authors must be widely congratulated."
