About This Product

To help injured patients make a full recovery and return to their normal routines as quickly as possible, physical therapists and physical therapist assistants need to rely on a thorough understanding of the human body and an ability to recognize both common and rare ailments easily. This collection brings together videos from such trusted producers as Wolters Kluwer Health, Castalia Media, Healthy Learning, U.S. Kinesiology Training Institute, and PESI, Inc., that will help physical therapy students learn and practice crucial techniques in ways textbooks alone cannot. Aspiring physical therapists can find short instructional clips that cover a wide range of physical therapy interventions and examinations—from stretching techniques to wrapping a shin splint—as well as seminars from top trainers and in-depth documentaries on the history of physical and occupational therapy, massage, and biomechanics.
