Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic Exercise This large book was written by 35 different authors (12 are European and 1 is Canadian); it has 36 chapters and two appendixes. The first 18 chapters have to do with the basic principles of therapeutic exercise such as the motor unit, physiology of exercise and fatigue, mechanical anatomy of motion and posture, and structure and motions of the shoulder, hip, feet, and hands. Several chapters discuss the various types and uses of exercise and the apparatus required, especially in hydrotherapy. There are chapters on kinetic occupational therapy, testing of muscle strength, and other tests and measurements such as measurement of articular movement. One chapter is devoted to the controversial subject of "proprioceptive facilitation in therapeutic exercise." The last 17 chapters concern the uses of exercise in disease conditions, including scoliosis; poliomyelitis; amputations; orthopedic conditions; foot disabilities; arthritis; multiple sclerosis; paraplegia; pulmonary, heart, and vascular disease; obstetrics; and orthoptics.
