Written by recognized authorities in the field, Joan Edelstein, MA, PT, FISPO and Jan Bruckner, PhD, PT, this is a prime resource for practitioners and clinicians.
Individual chapters cover orthoses for the foot, ankle, knee, hip, trunk, neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. Orthoses for patients with paraplegia, burns, and soft tissue contractures are detailed and illustrated. Prescription guidelines, evaluation techniques, goal setting, and training procedures are presented.
Each chapter has interesting "thought" questions and case studies to promote clinical reasoning and problem-solving skills. A unique feature of this text is the inclusion of a point-counterpoint discussion to demonstrate how clinicians can manage the same patient in different ways. This approach inspires broader thinking about clinical management.
