Book Description :

Dancers represent a unique athletic population. They can often be required to perform a variety of shows of differing intensity and styles: professional ballet dancers may perform up to 150 shows a year, across eighteen different productions. The dynamic and demanding nature of dance can however lead to injury, making injury prevention and management a vital part of dance training. Drawing on research and knowledge from both sports and dance medicine, this book will provide dance and healthcare professionals with a fundamental understanding of dance terminology, physiology and movement requirements, and how these relate to specific injuries commonly sustained in dance. Proposed models and structures of pathology-specific rehabilitation and usable examples are illustrated with step-by-step photographs and anatomical diagrams, as well as case studies for common injuries. Training programmes, conditioning exercises and advice are supported by findings from contemporary medical literature to ensure an informed, conclusive and evidence-based approach to the healthcare of dancers. Chapters will cover a range of issues including the unique challenges seen in dance and how they differ from other athletic populations; physical preparation and conditioning for dance; injury prevention, tracking and management models and an exploration of the regional anatomical injuries commonly seen in dance. Structured rehabilitation and detailed exercise programmes are covered and dance criteria for musculoskeletal injuries, concussion and post-surgery are discussed.

Book Description :

While other texts emphasize only technical application of the basic principles of orthopedic science, this text demands critical thinking and enhanced awareness of principles and application of the foundations of orthopedic science. Tailored to the needs of the PTA, each chapter builds on previous information and is complete with challenging review questions. The 2nd edition also includes a stronger emphasis on the fundamentals on exercise science with focus on tissue healing, orthopedic injury, and how to bridge the gap between basic science and physical healing. It also includes six new chapters and the addition of seven appendices. Part I: Basic Concepts of Orthopedic Management begins with the essential concepts of teamwork and shared responsibility within the Physical Therapy team and then develops an understanding in the basic areas of flexibility, strength, endurance, balance, and coordination Part II: Review of Tissue Healing, introduces appropriate concepts of injury and repair of musculoskeletal tissue. Part III: Common Medications in Orthopedics, focuses on common medications used in orthopedics. Knowledge of the actions and side effects of medications and their possible impact on treatment is important for the PTA who is treating patients. Part IV: Gait and Joint Mobilization, provides information that will improve the PTA's ability to treat a patient with gait disability. Part V: Biomechanical Basis for Movement, deals with the basis of human movement. This section's presentation of introductory mechanics precedes orthopedic pathologies and therapeutic interventions by pulling together essential basics of anatomy, physiology, tissue healing, kinesiology, and principles of therapeutic exercise. Part VI: Management of Orthopedic Conditions, serves as the foundation of the text, covering the ankle, foot, and toes; the knee; the hip and pelvis; the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine; the shoulder; the elbow; and the wrist and hand. Each chapter is complete with challenging review questions that include substantial fill-in, essay questions, short answer, and important critical thinking applications. More than 530 photos and illustrations help readers understand new concepts and procedures. A unique new chapter, The Role of the Physical Therapist Assistant in Physical Assessment, offers a critical review of essential knowledge related to systems of the body and includes a systems approach to physical assessment specifically applied to PTA. Another unique new chapter, Physical Agents Used in the Treatment of Common Musculoskeletal Conditions, bridges the gap between basic science, assessment, and clinical utility of physical agents. The addition of a chapter on Orthopedic Biomechanics and Kinesiology helps broaden the scope of and enhance the clinical application of kinesiology. The new chapters Composition and Function of Connective Tissue and Neurovascular Healing and Thromboembolic Disease contain new and updated relevant information on ligament healing, bone healing (substantial increase), cartilage healing, and muscle and tendon healing.
