This expert guide offers a new approach to physiotherapy education. It supports you to formulate your own approach to different scenarios, then compare this with what the experts say – helping you learn the facts and how to problem solve at the same time!

More than 50 chapters cover a wide variety of topics that physiotherapists will come across in practice, including the ICU, paediatrics, women’s health and disability scenarios. Each presents a case study and asks you to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan, followed by the expert view at the end of each case.

The Student Physiotherapist’s Companion is produced by some of the UK’s leading physiotherapy experts including consultants, academics, managers and clinical interest groups, many of them writing about scenarios that do not appear in any other textbook.

Key Features
    • More than 50 chapters written by experts in their field
    • Written with physiotherapy students in mind – addresses your specific needs
    • Illustrations support understanding
    • Varied case studies help to develop a wide range of expertise across different settings
