"What I like about this text is the way it tailors the relevant aspects of pathophysiology towards its target audience.
The book is well presented with a plethora of relevant diagrams and tables. It is well suited to students and qualified practitioners alike. Reading this book will go a long way in understanding various conditions, how the body deals with them and how our treatment can influence rehabilitation?
