The new standard in fitness books, featuring hundreds of at-home stretches and exercises. At last, the first complete, fully illustrated compendium of stretching and exercises for every part of the body, backed by the experience and medical and scientific authority of the American Physical Therapy Association. Each exercise in the book has been prepared and reviewed by a special editorial board, chaired by Dr. Marilyn Moffat, president emeritus of the APTA, and widely considered to be the preeminent expert in the field. Broken down into three major sections, The American Physical Therapy Association Book of Body Repair and Maintenance first offers illustrated descriptions of the structure and mechanics of each major body part, explaining what can go wrong and how to properly care for that area. A middle section provides general information on posture, body mechanics, weight control, aerobic conditioning, and maintenance programs. Each chapter references the main part of the book, the catalog of exercises.

Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice Patterns(SM) answers the call to what today's physical therapy students and clinicians are looking for when integrating the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice as it relates to the cardiopulmonary system in clinical care. As a part of Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice Pattern(SM) is edited by Dr. Donna Frownfelter in a user-friendly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the Guide language, but also parallels the patterns of the Guide. In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and imaging is provided. Each pattern then details two to three diversified case studies coinciding with the Guide format. The physical therapist examination, including history, systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed. Sample Cases in Some of the Practice Patterns Include: * Primary Prevention/Risk Reduction for Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Disorders: A junior high student status post hospitalization for pneumonia with personal and familial cardiovascular and pulmonary risk factors; A weekend warrior status post ACL repair with significant cardiovascular and pulmonary risk factors; A medically frail elderly female with CHF in failing health. * Impaired Ventilation Respiration/Gas Exchange, and Aerobic Capacity / Endurance Associated with Airway Clearance Dysfunction: A child with CF exacerbation and failure to thrive; a forty year old patient with CF experiencing a pulmonary exacerbation; A patient with bronchitis and emphysema who has Organic Toxic Dust Syndrome. * Impaired Ventilation and Respiratory/Gas Exchange Associated With Ventilatory Pump Dysfunction/Failure: A child with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy who has acute shortness of breath with possible aspiration; A patient with Guillain Barre Syndrome, pneumonia and shortness of breath. * Impaired Circulation and Anthropometric Dimensions Associated With Lymphatic System Disorders: A female two years status post lumpectomy and lymph node dissection for breast cancer with secondary lymphedema of her right upper extremity; A male with lower extremity lymphedema following surgery for prostate cancer. At long last, Dr. Marilyn Moffat and Dr. Donna Frownfelter have created a book that will integrate the parameters of the Guide, as it relates to the cardiopulmonary system, into the practice arena, that not only covers the material but also allows for a problem-solving approach to learning for educators and students.

Forget fad diets-here's a proven program based on good sense and good scienceHere are just a few of the bewildering pseudoscientific suggestions found in some of the bestselling diet books: abandon starch; eat all the fat you want, but count protein grams; eat dessert, but no fat; never mix proteins and carbohydrates; customize your diet based on your blood type; forget counting calories; seek emotional solutions to your weight issues. Even books that are based on sound scientific principles generally tell only half the story. The 9 Truths about Weight Loss is the long-awaited antidote to the scores of diet fads that have, in the long run, failed for so many frustrated people. In a program built on years of scientific research and practical experience, Daniel S. Kirschenbaum covers every aspect of losing weight and keeping it off. He shows how attacking weight loss is essentially an athletic challenge and reiterates the necessity of both sensible eating and tracking your food intake. He reminds us that it's natural for our bodies to fight weight loss, and as a psychologist, he shows us how to get through the inevitable emotional roadblocks. Going beyond try quick fixes, The 9 Truths about Weight Loss provides a positive, manageable program for the millions of Americans committed to controlling their weight once and for all.
