I've also found that the 'Introduction to scientific concepts' section has really helped me build a base of knowledge in subjects such as tissue healing, nerve activation and pain which aren't only useful in assisting the understanding of electrotherapy theory but will also assist in other subjects.
Coming to the subject from a non-technical background, this electrotherapy text has definitely the right one for me as it doesn't get too technical or complicated. I'd definitely recommend this book for anyone trying to get to grips with the subject.
Watson has been at the forefront of establishing electrotherapy as a valid and evidence based clinical modality for many years now. Interestingly Watson points out that electrotherapy is only useful when used in the right context and with the correct parameters/dosage. Inaccuracies in these areas have created uncertainty of the efficacy of many of these electrotherapy modalities for clinicians and this text summaries how and why and with specific doses to best apply electrotherapy to achieve optimal treatment outcomes.
This text will serve any musculoskeletal clinician well.
Following on from this are sections from a number of contributors on thermal and non-thermal modalities, electrical stimulation modalities, ultrasound imaging and finally precautions and contraindications. Each chapter includes a good range of references, helpful in an evidence-based book!
Online information includes an image bank which has a good selection that you can use in your presentations but this resource could have been expanded to include some assessment tools to test knowledge.
This book can be utilised by students, practising physiotherapists or in fact anyone with an interest in electrotherapy: it has something for all. It is simply enough explained for the novice but with enough depth for those with a bit more experience. If you want a good book that you will not outgrow too quickly and that you will continue to refer to, then this is the one.
