Extract

Most orthopaedic surgeons realize that rehabilitation is the fundamental key for good functional recovery and is the "gold standard" for nonoperative treatment. This book provides a wonderful starting point for nonoperative treatment by providing standard, accepted rehabilitation protocols that can be tailored to the rehabilitative needs of each patient.The information and illustrations will serve as a great adjunct to patient education and will help the orthopaedist and his or her dedicated support staff to explain common orthopaedic problems to the patient. The office staff can either photocopy the various exercise protocols for patients to take home or they can print out copies with the CD-ROM that accompanies the book, thus minimizing the expense associated with outpatient rehabilitation.
