This course is derived from the textbook by Jeffrey Placzek, MD, PT and David Boyce, PT, EdD, OCS, ©2006. This textbook is part of the popular Secrets series. It presents physical therapy concepts and then introduces different healing modalities, specialties and orthopedic procedures typically prescribed for common injuries such as shoulders and extremities. Common diseases are included as well as more innovative diagnostic tools for physical therapists such as radiology. The text features concise information that includes tips, and memory “secrets”. Bulleted lists, algorithms and illustrations provide a quick review of the specific topics discussed. The information is interesting, entirely evidence-based, outcome based and up-to-date.
