In order to effectively examine, test, and treat patients with exercise, physical therapists need to understand how physiology from the cellular to the systems level provides the basis for normal responses to exercise, but that is not enough. Knowledge about pathophysiology, the changes that lead to abnormal responses to exercise in different patient populations, is also essential.

Clinical Exercise Pathophysiology for Physical Therapy: Examination, Testing, and Exercise Prescription for Movement-Related Disorders is a comprehensive reference created to answer the “why” and the “how” to treat patients with exercise by offering both comprehensive information from the research literature, as well as original patient cases.

Dr. Debra Coglianese, along with her contributors, have arranged Clinical Exercise Pathophysiology for Physical Therapy into three parts: foundations of physiological responses, pathophysiology of deconditioning and physiology of training, and pathophysiology considerations and clinical practice. The chapters present the physiology and pathophysiology for defined patient populations consistent with the American Physical Therapy Association’s Guide to Physical Therapy Practice.

Patient cases also supplement each chapter to illustrate how understanding the content of the chapter informs physical therapy examination, testing, and treatment. The patient/client management model from the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice defines the structure of the patient cases, and the International Classification of Function, Disability, and Health (ICF) model of disablement has been inserted into each patient case. Highlighted “Clinician Comments” appear throughout each patient case to point out the critical thinking considerations.

Clinical Exercise Pathophysiology for Physical Therapy: Examination, Testing, and Exercise Prescription for Movement-Related Disorders is a groundbreaking reference for the physical therapy student or clinician looking to understand how physiology and pathophysiology relate to responses to exercise in different patient populations.

“Overall, this book is a valuable resource for students and practicing clinicians who want to better understand the link between pathophysiology and exercise responses in people with different conditions, particularly those with cardiopulmonary disorders.”

             - Jordan A. Guenette, BHK, MSc, PhD, Physiotherapy Canada

 

“Its coverage is broad, ranging from a cellular metabolism review to the discharge summary – with all of the connections in between…Another innovative upgrade distinguishes the patient cases in this book and enhances their educational value. It can be useful to know more about what a patient’s therapist is thinking, moment by moment. Coglianese says these limitations have now been solved with the introduction of a “Clinician Comments” feature that emphasizes critical thinking and moves the ‘just the facts’ structure of case presentations…The content provides a clear delineation of the physiology, pathophysiology, and research evidence that supports therapeutic exercise intervention across the scope of physical therapy practice…The extensive patient cases illustrate not only the application of physiological and pathophysiological principles for patient management, but the critical thinking employed as well. The information in the cases will inform future clinical practice for students at all levels.”

“This is a useful addition to the field of physical therapy. Chapters are comprehensive, well organized, and easy to follow, enabling both students and licensed physical therapists to get the most from the book.”
