Master the PTA’s role in orthopedic care — from the examination to treatment planning and interventions! Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant, 5th Edition helps you understand and apply the principles of orthopedic science to clinical practice. First you will learn the basics of assessing flexibility, strength, endurance, and balance, and then you’ll become a more valuable PTA by learning the essentials of tissue healing, gait and movement, kinesiology, and the management of orthopedic patients by region and condition. This edition reflects the latest, evidence-based practice and adds updates to the Evolve website. Written by clinician and educator Robert Manske, along with a team of expert contributors, this book describes how to work effectively with a supervising physical therapist!

    • Comprehensive coverage addresses not only core concepts related to orthopedic care, but also includes biomechanics, pharmacology, imaging, in-depth reviews of the types of tissue healing, and the PTA's role in physical assessment and interventions.
    • More than 600 illustrations and 75 summary tables reinforce orthopedic concepts and procedures.
    • A focus on critical thinking and application prepares you for the treatment room and for the clinical practicum portions of your PTA program.
