The Rehabilitation Department is proud to announce that a new, pocket-sized handbook version of the widely well-received Postsurgical Rehabilitation Guidelines for the Orthopedic Clinician has been published!

The handbook highlights the easy-to-follow phase-guideline tables found in the original textbook, encapsulating crucial information into phases of healing and rehabilitation that incorporate Goals, Precautions, Treatment Strategies, and Criteria for Advancement.  This pocket guide makes a perfect companion piece to the original textbook, and we are pleased to offer this resource to you in a format that will allow you to apply what you've learned in your day-to-day treatment plans.

Please keep in mind that this booklet is intended as a companion to, and by no means a replacement of, the didactic, evidence-based content found in the original textbook.  We strongly recommend that the concepts introduced in Post-Surgical Rehabilitation Guidelines for the Orthopedic Clinician be thoroughly read and understood before the information outlined in the handbook is put into practice. 

You will also find the original text an invaluable resource for addressing questions and troubleshooting, in addition to the award-winning, not-to-be-missed DVD featuring over 60 minutes and over 100 clips of video presentations demonstrating specific treatment strategies, tests, and measures.
