For over a decade, Dr. Carol Davis opened the minds of health care professionals worldwide to the idea of complementary therapies in rehabilitation. The pages of this renowned text covered evidence for efficacy in therapy, prevention, and wellness unlike any other text. It is the first of its kind published in the United States.As science continues to evolve and change, so does the expertise of Dr. Davis and the experienced therapists who join together in writing the various chapters in the Third Edition of "Complementary Therapies in Rehabilitation".This evidence-based text includes an insightful review profiling the latest peer reviewed research of holistic approaches commonly used in rehabilitation. Students and practitioners are now able to evaluate the efficacy of these approaches from the evidence that is reported.New to the Third Edition are: the latest summary of findings in energy medicine and bio-energetics applied to rehabilitation therapies; updates on randomized control trials; reviews of evidence of efficiency; and energy techniques as a way of returning healing to health care.Professionals will also be excited to have at their hands a new chapter describing the latest discoveries in the science that helps explain how these therapies may 'work'. It appears that the future of health care will be based on this unfolding science of energy, medicine and vibration. Professor Davis reads the most updated reports of the latest quantum science and then translates this information into meaningful ideas that relate to what therapists observe every day with patients in their case."Complementary Therapies in Rehabilitation, Third Edition", is the perfect text for all rehabilitation professionals looking to deepen their understanding of various holistic modalities that are making a difference in rehabilitation, especially with patients who have 'hit the wall' with the standard treatments that based on mechanistic science.
