This book examines physiology as it relates to the pathology of conditions encountered in the clinical environment. Coverage includes information relevant to physical therapists and occupational therapists, that focuses on the knowledge and skills required for successful patient interaction and rehabilitation.


“What I like about this text is the way it tailors the relevant aspects of pathophysiology towards its target audience.

The book is well presented with a plethora of relevant diagrams and tables. It is well suited to students and qualified practitioners alike. Reading this book will go a long way in understanding various conditions, how the body deals with them and how our treatment can influence rehabilitation”

In Touch, Summer 2007, No. 119.
