Offering a comprehensive look at physical therapy science and practice, Guccione’s Geriatric Physical Therapy, 4th Edition is a terrific resource for both students and practitioners alike. Content in this new edition is thoroughly revised to keep readers up to date with the latest geriatric physical therapy protocols and conditions. Five new chapters are added to this edition to help readers learn how to better manage common orthopedic, cardiopulmonary, and neurologic conditions; become familiar with functional outcomes and assessments; and better understand the psychosocial aspects of aging. And because the text is filled with relevant and clinically accurate content that also explores theory and rationale for evidence practice, it’s a great asset for any foundational or specialized geriatric physical therapy course.
