The most comprehensive pathology text designed specifically for physical therapists, this book offers guidelines, precautions, and contraindications for physical therapy interventions with clients who have musculoskeletal or neuromuscular problems in addition to other significant medical conditions (such as diabetes, heart disease, pancreatitis, obesity, substance abuse, pneumonia, thyroid problems, etc.) Special implications for therapists are included in each discussion of specific diseases and comorbidities. Therapists can easily look up common illnesses, diseases, adverse effects of drugs, organ transplantation, laboratory values, and much more, to see how the patient's conditions might affect therapy and outcomes. Information about the etiology, risk factors, pathogenesis, and clinical manifestations of each comorbidity helps therapists answer their patients' questions and offer useful patient education.
