Most books currently available do not extensively cover basic science, physical therapy management, or an interdisciplinary approach. This new book not only explores the fundamentals of pain neurobiology, but it also reviews evidence on the mechanisms of action of physical therapy treatments, as well as their clinical effectiveness in specific pain syndromes. Mechanisms and Management is a comprehensive textbook for the physical therapy student and an invaluable resource for the practicing physical therapist.
