Review quote

"The first 10 chapters are particularly impressive, providing a good foundation in rehabilitation and how to achieve rehabilitation goals. The best part is the approach the author takes in helping entry level clinicians understand rehabilitation and how to properly implement rehabilitation protocols with patients. The book and its supporting resources are well presented, giving readers a concrete and straightforward approach to learn about this field. It is one of the best resources on rehabilitation in sports medicine/athletic training. It gets my vote every time. " - Ernest G. Eugene, MS, BS, Virginia Tech, Doody's Review Service
