5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for students & therapists/assistants, 30 Nov. 2005
This review is from: The Physiotherapist's Pocket Book: Essential Facts at Your Fingertips (Physiotherapy Pocketbooks) (Paperback)
This book has been the best buy in my student life so far. Very easy to use and just enough detail. I know many qualified therapists who still keep a copy close to hand.
The book includes overviews of the main areas of Physio; Musculoskeletal, Neurology, Respiratory and also includes a Pharmacology section. It is an excellent quick reference guide and has easy to follow diagrams and charts. It outlines the basic information and principles and is structured and presented well. It has comprehensive musculoskeletal & neurological anatomy, tests and descriptions of common pathologies. It includes relevant informative data and contraindications to treatment. The pharmacology section includes an A - Z drugs list with descriptions. Medical abbreviations, electrotherapy precautions, conversion tables and Adult & Paediatric basic life support are also included. The book provides excellent references and further reading pointers for more detailed information.
The only negative thing I have to raise is that the book is light blue and black text. The book is purely a reference point and anyone wishing to study from it may be grateful of a colour copy. Don't let this put you off as it is an excellent book.
I would recommend this book to anyone studying Physiotherapy or working in the Physio field as it has the right amount of detail and is worth the money.
