About the Book

"Therapeutic Exercise: Moving Toward Function, Third Edition provides a conceptual framework for learning how to make clinical decisions regarding the prescription of therapeutic exercise--from deciding which exercise(s) to teach, to how to teach them, to the dosage required for the best possible outcome. Throughout this text, readers will learn how to treat, with the use of therapeutic exercise and related interventions, the impairments that correlate to functional limitations and the disability and to work toward the most optimal function possible"--Provided by publisher.
