The Shoulder: Theory & Practice presents a comprehensive fusion of the current research knowledge and clinical expertise that will be essential for any clinician from any discipline who is involved with the assessment, management and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions of the shoulder.

This book is a team project, led by two internationally renowned researchers and clinicians, Jeremy Lewis and César Fernández-de-las-Peñas. Other members of the team include over 100 prominent clinical experts and researchers. All are at the forefront of contributing new knowledge to enable us to provide better care for those seeking support for their shoulder problem. The team also comprises the voices of patients with shoulder problems who recount their experiences and provide clinicians with important insight into how better to communicate and manage the needs of the people who seek advice and guidance.

The contributing authors include physiotherapists, physical therapists, medical doctors, orthopedic surgeons, psychologists, epidemiologists, radiologists, midwives, historians, nutritionists, anatomists, researchers, rheumatologists, oncologists, elite athletes, athletic trainers, pain scientists, strength and conditioning experts and practitioners of yoga and tai chi. The cumulative knowledge contained within the pages of The Shoulder: Theory & Practice would take decades to synthesise.

The Shoulder: Theory & Practice is divided into 43 chapters over three parts that holistically blend all key aspects of the essential theory and practice to successfully support clinicians who want to offer those seeking help the very best care possible. It is an authoritative text and is supported by exceptional artwork, photographs and links to relevant online information.

What devices and screen sizes can I view the book on?

The book is designed to be fully functional on all device types, large screen (desktop and laptop), tablet and mobile.

On mobile devices it shows in single-page mode and works best in portrait view, on larger screens it shows as in two-page mode and works best in landscape (e.g. when viewing on a handheld tablet device).

For the optimal experience, it is recommended to view on a larger screen as this maximises the size of the text at the default zoom level.
