Reviews for Therapeutic Modalities for Musculoskeletal Injuries
The book meets the needs of everyone from new students to long-time professionals by clearly explaining each concept in both basic terms and in-depth detail... The inclusion of manual therapies, mechanical energy, and exercise as modalities is vital as these are emerging concepts in the healthcare and injury management fields. This book compares well with other books on therapeutic modalities, and is the most complete resource. --Doody's Book Review
