Amy E. Sturkey, PT 

This book features stop-action photos and “how-to” tips to strengthen children’s hips. With exercise suggestions for hip flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, internal and external rotation, this book is a lifesaver for PTs, physical therapy assistants, instructors, caregivers, and parents. The hips are simply the first body part that we have targeted in a book, with at least three more target areas upcoming in the future. This book is perfect for telehealth. New physical therapists will love ideas to assist in treatment session preparation, planning, and programming. More experienced physical therapists will have at their fingertips a wide range of treatment suggestions for the hips to add more variety in their treatment sessions.
