Necessary for both new and experienced practitioners, Physical Therapy Documentation: From Examination to Outcome will teach and explain physical therapy documentation from A to Z. Physical Therapy Documentationcovers all of the fundamentals for prospective physical therapists preparing to work in the clinic or clinicians looking to refine and update their skills.
