Target Audience
Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants.

This course utilizes text from the softback textbook by Michelle H. Cameron MD, PT, OCS “Physical Rehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant” ©2011. Physical Rehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides a clear, easy-to-read, evidence-based guide to the PTA's role in patient management, covering the core concepts related to physical rehabilitation and emphasizing the PTA's role in intervention. A treatment-oriented focus addresses each of the four categories of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Preferred Practice Patterns: musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, and integumentary. The final section of the book addresses interventions which overlap many practice patterns.
