Summary note:
"With a new title and format, the 4th edition of the previously titled Thermal Agents in Rehabilitation combines all modalities in one book. Its focus remains on expanding and strengthening students' clinical decision-making skills about each modality through sample case studies. The book takes a problem-solving approach with hands-on information that describes the contemporary application of modalities with an emphasis on the concepts of evidence-based practice. This updated edition has been entirely revised to reflect the terminology of the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice."--BOOK JACKET.
