Master the role and the skills of the physical therapist assistant! Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant, 4th Edition helps you apply the principles of orthopedic science to physical therapy interventions. First you will learn how to assess flexibility, strength, endurance, and balance, and then you’ll become a more valuable PTA by learning the essentials of tissue healing, gait and manual therapy, biomechanics and kinesiology, and the management of orthopedic patients by region and condition. This edition includes a new full-color design and illustrations, and broadens its scope with new chapters on topics such as musculoskeletal imaging and women’s issues related to physical rehabilitation. Written by clinician and educator Robert Manske, along with a team of expert contributors, this text is your complete guide to success in physical therapist assisting!

    • Clear explanations of difficult concepts are provided by experienced, practicing clinicians who address the specific needs of the PTA.
    • Comprehensive coverage provides a "one-stop" source for all things orthopedic, from core concepts related to orthopedics to information about the PTA's role in physical assessment and interventions, in-depth reviews of types of tissue healing, biomechanics, and pharmacology.
    • A focus on critical thinking and application helps to prepare you for the treatment room and for the clinical practicum portions of the curriculum.
    • Key terms and learning objectives begin each chapter, useful as "checkpoints" to which you can refer to ensure content comprehension and study effectively for examinations.
    • Over 500 illustrations reinforce concepts and procedures, supplemented by summary tables and boxes.
    • End-of-chapter review questions prepare you for the types of critical thinking you will be required to do in practice.
    • Unique! End-of-chapter glossaries define key terms.
    • Appendices provide a quick reference for information such as laboratory values, common medications, and associated movements.
    • A six-part structure organizes the book's material:
      • Part I: Basic Concepts of Orthopedic Management begins with the essential concepts of teamwork and shared responsibility within the physical therapy team and then covers the basic areas of flexibility, strength, endurance, balance, and coordination.
      • Part II: Review of Tissue Healing introduces the types of tissue, then discusses ligament, bone, cartilage, muscle and tendon healing before looking briefly at neurovascular healing and thromboembolic disease.
      • Part III: Common Medications in Orthopedics focuses on common medications used in orthopedics, their actions, side effects, and possible impact on treatment.
      • Part IV: Mobilization and Biomechanics deals with the basics of human movement including a chapter on gait, and provides information on joint mobilization.
      • Part V: Management of Orthopedic Conditions by Region covers the body from the ankle, foot, and toes up to the shoulder, the elbow, and the wrist and hand, including a chapter on the spine.
      • NEW! Part VI: Management of Orthopedic Conditions by Affliction includes chapters on hot topics such as rheumatic disease; pain and pain-related syndromes; and bracing, orthotics, and prosthetics.
      • Student resources on a companion Evolve website include critical thinking applications, review questions, animations, reference lists from the book linked to MedLine, and more.
      • More than 30 new contributors participated in this new edition, allowing you to learn from experts in each field.
      • Unique! Rheumatic Disorders chapter covers disorders such as arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, and systemic lupus erythematosus, including pathophysiology, a description of the inflammation, and pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.
      • Unique! Pain and Pain Syndromes chapter covers types of pain, pain mechanisms, its measurement, and its management.
      • Unique! Bracing, Orthotics, and Prosthetics chapter outlines the types of materials used to construct braces, orthotics, and prosthetics; the use of each unit by anatomic area; their biomechanics; the indications and contraindications for each; as well as an introduction to amputation.
