This landmark PTA-specific pathology text is back and better than ever! Like its previous edition, Goodman and Fuller’s Pathology Essentials for the Physical Therapist Assistant, 2nd Edition offers an intervention-focused guide to disease processes and disorders with the specific needs of the physical therapy assistant in mind. Within each chapter you’ll find a consistent, well-organized approach that defines each pathology disorder, describes the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention, and rounds out the discussion with relevant case study examples based on established practice patterns. Along with this critical information, this second edition also boasts a number of changes and additions to make it even more relevant for the PTA student, including: more streamlined content to keep the focus on what is most applicable to the physical therapist assistant; new critical thinking questions and clinical scenarios on Evolve to help students better apply what they are learning to actual practice; and an easily recognizable medical management section that addresses diagnosis, treatment and prognosis for each condition discussed.

    • PTA-specific information and reading level provides easy-to-follow guidance that is specific to the role of the PTA in managing patients.
    • Special Implications for the PTA sections offer a starting point when addressing a particular condition for the first time.
    • Medical management section addresses diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis for each condition discussed.
    • Easy-to-follow, consistent format features a well-organized approach that defines each disorder followed by sections on clinical manifestations and medical management.

    • Terminology and language from the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice is used throughout the text to familiarize readers with the standardized terminology that’s used in practice.
    • Abundance of tables and boxes organize and summarize important points making it easy to access key information.
