Now fully revised and updated, Dr. Barbara Gladson's Pharmacology for Rehabilitation Professionals, 2nd Edition, remains your best resource for understanding how various drugs affect patients during therapeutic exercise and rehabilitation. Using case studies and engaging activities, it helps you apply essential pharmacology information directly to rehabilitation practice. New chapters, a new reader-friendly design, new artwork, and more enhance the text and bring you up to date with both basic pharmacologic principles as well as the mechanism of action and side effects of drugs commonly seen in rehabilitation practice.
"This is an excellent resource for students in doctoral programs or for experienced clinicians who need a reference for pharmacologic considerations in rehabilitation. This book is appropriate for all areas of physical therapy practice, and I can recommend it without reservation. The second edition is justified because of the continued evolution of pharmacology and the need for updates on medications. This is an important tool to help therapists improve patient-centered care and be more cognizant of adverse drug interactions."
