Pathology: Implications for the PTA

I have found this book to be a great resource. I highly recommend it!

Excellent Reference

Great pathology book...very comprehensive. Excellent review of systems for this PTA in acute care.

I would have given it more stars if I could've...

This book is THAT good. It is the most clear and concise book on various pathologies that I have seen since entering PT school a decade ago. It's a huge book that covers every illness one could possibly think of. As a required text for my tDPT program I was a little put off initially by the price but it is well worth the expense. I have used it frequently when a client has presented with symptoms which just didn't match their referral dx. I have also used it with family members and friends who have been diagnosed with serious illnesses and it has been very informative. This should be in every PT's personal can always ask for it on your wishlist! Also, if you have a chance to take a continuing ed course from Ms. Goodman, please do...I had the opportunity last month and she was a very dynamic speaker.

Pathology:Implications for the physical therapist

A very useful book. Probably the one I consult most often. Great reviews of many conditions/disorders with frequently helpful guidelines for practice. Worth the money!

Well organized and directly applicable

This text is the most valuable one I own. The information is extremely useful and is written in very understandable language. The best aspect of each description of the Pathology is the "Implications for the PT" that follows each one. These columns break each pathological condition down into what we can and should do in each case, and what we cannot do for each case. An excellent source of information.
