Experiments and Demonstrations in Physical Therapy : An Inquiry Approach to Learning
For courses in Research Design and Therapeutic Exercise offered by Physical Therapy Departments. This practical, hands-on manual is designed to transition aspiring physical therapists from "technical problem solvers" to "reflective practitioners" while encouraging professional therapists to continue their education and advanced their profession through research. Its broader goal is to incorporate scientific inquiry into factual learning and to support the scientific basis for physical therapy procedures and facilitate research.
