From the reviews of the fourth edition:
"This book explains the use of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) in the treatment of patients with various impairments. ... an excellent reference for physical therapy students as well as physical therapists at all levels. ... This book clearly explains the rationales for, and uses of, PNF. ... The photos illustrating the different techniques with well-written instructions are the true strength of this book." (Jeff Yaver, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2014)
