Learn how to select and apply physical agents to optimize patient outcomes! Physical Agents in Rehabilitation, 6th Edition provides evidence-based guidance for safe and effective use of agents such as heat and cold, lasers and light, ultrasound, electrotherapy, shock waves, hydrotherapy, traction, and compression. It makes clinical decision making easier with clear explanations of the scientific theory and physiology underlying each agent, and also describes current research and rationales for treatment recommendations.

    • Comprehensive coverage of all physical agents including mechanisms, clinical effects, and application techniques for thermal agents, electrical currents, electromagnetic agents, and mechanical agents.
    • UNIQUE! Step-by-step, illustrated Application Techniques boxes guide you in carrying out effective treatment options.
    • Updated Electrical Stimulation, Ultrasound, and Laser Light Handbook is included in the eBook as a quick reference to use in the clinic.
    • UNIQUE! Find the Evidence tables make it easy to find up-to-date, patient-specific evidence using the PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) framework.
    • Research references throughout the book, focused on high-quality evidence.
    • Updated review questions and answers help you master the material.
    • NEW! Shock Wave Therapy chapter covers the principles, evidence base, and practical guidance for using this newly available physical agent.
