The field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation focuses on the restoration of health and function and reintegration of the patient into the community. The goal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation: Principles and Practice is to organize, summarize, discuss, and make available knowledge in the field to assist the developing or established practitioner in these endeavors. This fifth edition is divided in two volumes for ease of use by the practitioner and to accommodate the dramatic increase in information and knowledge in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation since the publication of the fourth edition. This edition also introduces a classification of the chapters in new sections.
The content of the book has been extensively revised and expanded. There are six new chapters and over thirty major revisions in this edition. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive, thorough, and multidisciplinary discussion covering the depth and breadth of the science of physical medicine and rehabilitation and the evidence that supports current best practice. Chapters cover the scientific fundamentals of our field as well as the state-of-the-art clinical interventions used in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with a wide variety of diseases and disabilities. Authors for each chapter were chosen for their experience and expertise in their given topic. This text reflects the efforts of over two hundred contributing authors representing all parts of the world.
The editorial board for this edition has changed. Joel A. DeLisa, MD, Editor-in-Chief of the first four editions of the book has become Editor Emeritus. Walter R. Frontera, MD, PhD has assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief. In addition, a wonderful group of three Editors and nine Associate Editors have worked diligently to make this fifth edition a world class treatise.
The editors of this edition would like to express their appreciation to each of the editors and authors of previous editions. Their work has contributed in a special way to this current version. We also would like to acknowledge the hard work of the authors of this current edition; they have helped create an excellent source of knowledge for those interested in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Their commitment and dedication have made this an exciting and productive effort.
We hope this fifth edition of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation: Principles and Practice contributes significantly to the advancement of the field. As an essential resource for the training and continuing education of medical rehabilitation professionals, this text will help ensure that the care they provide to people with disabling conditions is of the highest quality, resulting in improvement in their health, function, and quality of life.
