Book Description

Due to the fact that other textbooks are written at either too high or too low of a level, this ebook, Pathology for the Physical Therapist Assistant (PDF), satisfies the requirements that PTA students have for pathology that is both understandable and applicable to clinical settings. Students will have an easier time understanding otherwise difficult pathological processes and will be able to maintain their interest thanks to the extensive illustrations in this ebook. The structure of the course can be broken down into one chapter per week, which works well with the 14-chapter format; alternatively, each chapter can be used as a separate module within any course.



  • The sections on physical therapy intervention provide an overview of specific pathologies and their corresponding manifestations.


  • When treating patients who have specific pathologies, it is imperative for the PTA to be aware of the various contraindications and precautions that are detailed in the sections that are “specific to PTA.”


  • Why is it Important for the PTA to Be Aware of This? sections serve as a basis for learning about particular pathologies and how they are relevant to the practice of physical therapy.


  • Before moving on to study pathology, students should first obtain a solid grounding in the normal physiology of each body system through the study of pathophysiology for each body system.


  • In addition, each chapter includes a glossary of new terms that are highlighted in bold, as well as a listing of content objectives titled “Chapter Concepts.” The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice is made even more relevant to the field of practice by the inclusion of reference boxes.


  • The It Happened in the Clinic boxes that are scattered throughout each chapter are designed to assist medical students in making connections between pathological conditions and actual clinical cases. The Geriatric Considerations boxes teach the student PTA to be sensitive to the needs and concerns of elderly patients.
