This course utilizes text from the softback textbook by Robert C. Manske PT, DPT, Med, SCS, ATC, CSCS and Gary A. Shankman, PTA “Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant” ©2011. Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant, 3rd Edition, was designed to meet the unique needs of physical therapist assistants, by focusing on critical thinking and applications of fundamental orthopedic principles in physical therapy interventions. Clear explanations cover basic concepts such as the PTA's role in physical assessment of flexibility, strength, endurance, and balance, along with the specifics of tissue healing; medications; gait and joint mobilization; and an introduction to biomechanics. It also describes the application of therapeutic interventions for many orthopedic conditions by region and affliction.
