A volume in the Contemporary Perspectives in Rehabilitation Series; edited by Steven L. Wolf, PhD, PT, FAPTA.
Here’s a current, concise, and evidence-based approach to the selection, application, and biophysical effects of therapeutic modalities in a case-based format with a wealth of photographs and figures.
The 5th Edition builds and expands on the strengths of previous editions and their focus on expanding and strengthening clinical decision-making skills through a hands-on, problem-solving approach.
I bought this for my modalities class, and it does a good job explaining all of the modalities and physiology behind them. There are nice summary boxes along the way that save you time if you can’t read in depth before class. It also explains some of the controversies with each modality along the way, so it helps with decision making.
I recommend this book to all therapist, both OT’s and PT’s. This book has lots of evidence based backing. I have been privilaged to meet one of the authors of this book at Uindy and I was also opportuned to read another book on modalities by the second author which I feel this is a better upgrade of the initial book. It is great book for both beginners and for experienced therapist and a well simplified book. Pls. all you therapist out there read this book and let your patients benefit from all the knowledge gathered in this book and make your patients recovery and response to intervention alot quicker. I sure you, you will feel and look smarter before your patients with the knowledge from this book.
