This book is an excellent resource for students or for experienced athletic trainers, physical therapists, or medical personnel. The numerous tables and illustrations and appendixes further enhance this friendlier edition. The 'at a glance' pages give the reader a quick overview of the text for each modality. Rather than using a cookbook method, the author encourages clinicians to use their own decision-making process to apply modalities appropriately, depending on the tissue depth and type, the injury, and the goal of therapy. An easy-to-follow reference as well as a suitable textbook for students. Rose L. Smith, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH for Physical Therapy, Volume 85, No. 9, September 2005
