New York/Stuttgart – Written by physicians, “General Pathology and Internal Medicine for Physical Therapists,” recently published by Thieme, introduces the basic principles of internal medicine and general pathology clearly and comprehensively for physical therapy (PT) students and practitioners. These basic principles are essential for understanding disease patterns and symptoms as well as diagnostic procedures and medical therapies.
With this user-friendly book at hand, students and PT practitioners will have the knowledge to identify underlying medical conditions, develop individualized treatment plans that take these factors into account, achieve sound therapeutic goals, and refer patients to other resources where necessary. “General Pathology and Internal Medicine for Physical Therapists” offers nearly 300 full-color, didactic illustrations that serve as a superb visual aid to learning and more than 160 study questions.
For PT students, this book will be a training guide throughout their studies and a valuable review as they prepare for examinations. For practitioners of physical therapy, exercise physiology, massage therapy, and other allied health disciplines, it is a reliable and easy-to-use reference that will help them fully understand their patients’ medical conditions and provide the highest levels of care.
