"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."
