Industry Reviews

"This book is awesome! It should really be called 'here is everything you need to know about rehabilitation and all the good stuff you have forgotten about'...This book gives you up to date information on the etiology of orthopaedic conditions, surgical procedures as well as surgical indications and considerations. However, its real strength lies in the guidelines and suggestions it has for the rehabilitation programs. The rehabilitation exercises are realistic, easy to implement and full of clinical nuggets which definitely makes the book come alive...This book will serve as a great reference point for any physiotherapists, or if you're like me it inspired a lot of new ideas for my clinic."
