Summary note:
"Kisner and Colby's Therapeutic Exercise: Foundations and Techniques continues its tenure as the premier textbook for therapeutic exercise with this enhanced new 5th edition. Now including new anatomical illustrations to complement the review of the structure and function of each body region, additional other new line drawings, and new photos of exercise techniques in the foundational chapters (1, 3, 4, 5, and 6), this edition makes an already great text even better. A new feature, "Focus on Evidence," highlights summaries of research from the current literature on key topics for increased attention to evidence-based clinical practice." "The 5th edition is thoroughly revised and updated to include more "Guide" language throughout as well. Text and illustrations have been redesigned to more clearly demonstrate exercise techniques in a step-by-step format, allowing students to easily follow along in the lab or clinic."--BOOK JACKET.
