Elsevier publishes Clinical Exercise: a case-based approach ? a new health textbook and DVD
A new health textbook and accompanying DVD from Elsevier Australia is set to dispel doubt in anyone who has ever wondered about the role of exercise when treating obesity, arthritis or back pain.
Sydney, 27th April 2011
Clinical Exercise: a case-based approach is a timely first edition aimed at practitioners and students interested in delivering exercise as therapy.
Providing evidence based on over 30 comprehensive case studies, the book examines why exercise is integral in the treatment of debilitating conditions.
Clinical Exercise: a case-based approach is written by specialists practicing within Australia and is applicable to a variety of modalities, from physiotherapy to general practice to occupational therapy.
Divided into two sections, the book first reviews the science underpinning therapeutic exercise in clinical and specialised populations, before highlighting current challenges and complexities in clinical practice.
Clinical Exercise: a case-based approach then features clinical case studies in numerous rehabilitative areas, including cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory, neurological, metabolic and occupational rehabilitation. All case studies are complemented by summary boxes and discussion questions for further learning.
Ethical issues faced by clinical exercise practitioners are also explored, along with the physiological effects of therapeutic exercise concurrent with illness or injury.
The accompanying DVD helps put theory into practice, showing demonstrations of clinical interviews, physical examinations, exercise assessments and exercise interventions with 'real-life' clients.
