Wellness and Holistic Physical Therapy, 3rd edition is "the" textbook for DPT programs to incorporate into their curriculum to ensure their students meet the wellness-related requirements of the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), APTA's Normative Model of Professional Physical Therapist Education, and APTA's "Minimum Required Skills of Entry-Level Physical Therapist Graduates."
This 3rd edition of Wellness and Holistic Physical Therapy replaces the 2010 and 2008 editions and is superior to them in every way. Topics include Healthy People's Leading Health Indicators, the application of wellness to the APTA Patient/Client Management Model, strategies to facilitate wellness including motivational interviewing, evidence-based Complementary / Alternative Medicines (CAMs) (such as acupressure, cupping and tai chi) as well as "forward thinking" concepts such as dry-needling and plant-based nutrition. The Special Topics chapter includes body composition and obesity, nicotine cessation, women's health and wellness, and more. An entire chapter is dedicated to Community Wellness and another chapter to Case Scenarios - both of which can be used for group assignments. Woven throughout the textbook are case scenarios, images of mock patients, and lots of color to engage the reader and enhance the learning experience.
