Fruth, PT, DHSc, OCS, just earned 4-stars from Doody's Review Service.

    Read more excerpts from the review:

    "It is well written with clear and concise descriptions and instructions. The case examples at the end of each section, which apply the information to clinical scenarios, are very helpful, especially for students. Each chapter is thoroughly referenced with up-to-date citations.

    Overall, this book can be a teaching tool in physical therapy education as well as a reference for more experienced clinicians. Students will find the directness of the fundamentals of practice easy to follow and very educational.

    More experienced clinicians will find the concise descriptions of a variety of topics very useful. The multisystem screening techniques will be particularly helpful to more experienced therapists, especially those who may not be familiar with some techniques based on their practice setting."
