For introductory courses in Physical Agents or Thermotherapy, Electrotherapy, and Physical Modalities in departments of Physical Therapy and Physical Therapy Assisting. This text guides students through application techniques for the various physical agents. Beginning with brief general comments regarding the use of electromedical equipment, it presents a brief summary of the physics of production and physiological effects of each agent along with step-by-step instructions and illustrations on how to use equipment. All instructions are generic enough to apply to a wide variety of equipment currently available. Conveniently spiral-bound for ease of use, it is a perfect compliment to any physical agents text.
