"This is an excellent resource for students in doctoral programs or for experienced clinicians who need a reference for pharmacologic considerations in rehabilitation. This book is appropriate for all areas of physical therapy practice, and I can recommend it without reservation. The second edition is justified because of the continued evolution of pharmacology and the need for updates on medications. This is an important tool to help therapists improve patient-centered care and be more cognizant of adverse drug interactions." - Timothy?McMahon, ?MPT? (Mercer University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences) c/o Doody Enterprises Inc. "This textbook on pharmacology is comprehensive, covering most areas of drug therapy most likely to be encountered by physiothrapists...they cover areas such as the scientific priniciples of pharmacology with chapters on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and adverse drug reactions; autonomic and cardiovascular pharmacology with the ttherapeutic areas in which the treatment of so much pharmacological treatment contributes...In conclusion while this book may be of value to physiotherapists as a useful reference work that covers most areas of pharmacology."
