Completely revised, much of the existing text has been replaced and updated. There are four new chapters covering simple wrist fractures, nerve compression, tendon entrapment and free tissue transfers. Many of the illustrations have been updated with new pictures added to illustrate the new chapters.
Welcomed by both doctors and therapists intending to specialize in the subject, or those who regularly encounter hand patients in the course of general practice, this text is an accessible, quick reference book for all those involved in this difficult area of rehabilitation.
With its new content and attractive new format, the popularity of this book is assured.
"This book is a superior resource for a new therapist in the field and an excellent teaching tool for students. For the hand therapist, it is an up-to-date reference. The author has taken her vast knowledge base and presented it in very clear terms.
