ABSTRACT

This textbook is an interesting and informative discussion of the latest developments in all phases of a new and important branch of medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation. The editor has developed the book from a series of lectures prepared by 24 authors representing six leading university centers of physical medicine and rehabilitation in the United States.

The book is composed of four sections. The first section contains an excellent discussion of the essentials of proper prescription writing for physical therapy and occupational therapy. Available types of treatment are presented with their indications, contraindications, and illustrative prescriptions. The physiologic effects, applications, and uses of heat, massage, and exercise, together with types of training in posture, rest, and relaxation, are thoroughly discussed. Two chapters on occupational therapy and descriptions of ultraviolet radiation, microwaves, and ultrasonic energy complete this section.

In the second section there is a dissertation on electrodiagnostic methods and testing
