Therapeutic Modalities for Musculoskeletal Injuries, Second Edition, is an introductory text to the theory and application of therapeutic modalities in the rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Like its predecessor, Therapeutic Modalities for Athletic Injuries, the text provides a clear perspective of the physics and physiological responses to the modalities discussed, and the new edition also prepares readers for the challenges arising in the ever-changing health care system.Part of Human Kinetics` Athletic Training Education Series, this text has been revised and updated to present current research related to therapeutic modalities. Additional insight from two experts also helps to expand the content of this second edition and encourage more diverse thinking among students. New chapters have been added on the use of therapeutic laser treatment and the basic concepts of evidence-based practice.Therapeutic Modalities for Musculoskeletal Injuries, Second Edition, goes beyond the how of modality application to ask why and when. Specific treatment for individual problems is not prescribed, but reference is made to specific guidelines, summary papers, and research papers. The text prepares students to search this type of literature and apply the information, so as clinicians they can seek evidence to find the optimal treatment strategy and support the clinical decisions they make.Human Kinetics' Athletic Training Education Series contains five textbooks, each with its own supporting instructional resources. Featuring the work of respected athletic training authorities, the series was created to parallel and expound on the content areas established by the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) Educational Council. Therapeutic Modalities for Musculoskeletal Injuries, Second Edition, addresses the following NATA content areas: Therapeutic Modalities and Psychosocial Intervention and Referral.To learn more about the books in this series, visit the Athletic Training Education Series Web site
