Edited by Tim Watson
Part of the Physiotherapy Essentials series
With a new editor at the helm, Electrotherapy: Evidence-Based Practice (formerly Clayton's Electrotherapy) is back in its 12th edition, continuing to uphold the standard of clinical research and evidence base for which it has become renowned.
This popular textbook comprehensively covers the use of electrotherapy in clinical practice and includes the theory which underpins that practice. Over recent years the range of therapeutic agents involved and the scope for their use have greatly increased and the new edition includes and evaluates the latest evidence and most recent developments in this fast-growing field. Tim Watson brings years of clinical, research and teaching experience to the new edition, with a host of new contributors, all leaders in their specialty. "An essential text for any student wanting to underpin the theory behind electrotherapy.
The beginning of the book is largely concerned with the principles of electrotherapy, with the latter chapters dealing with each modality individually.
Contraindications are clearly highlighted for each modality, as is the evidence base for the effectiveness of the treatment." - Laura Culpan, Physiotherapy student, University of Bradford, UKEvidence, evidence, evidence!Contributions from field leadersNew clinical reasoning model to inform decision makingAll chapters completely revisedNew layout, breaking up what is sometimes a difficult subject into manageable chunksPart of the Physiotherapy Essentials series - core textbooks for both students and lecturersOnline image bank now available!
