Completely updated and rewritten to meet the specific needs of physical therapist assistants, this Second Edition focuses on the implementation of treatment plans and intervention using the appropriate therapeutic exercise techniques. The book describes a wide variety of therapeutic exercises and details the purpose, position, and procedure for each technique. Case studies and pediatric and geriatric recommendations are included.

This edition has three all-new chapters: the role of the physical therapist assistant in therapeutic exercise, enhancement of breathing and pulmonary function, and functional fitness training for the elderly. Other new features include a two-color design, updated illustrations, and a glossary.
