Sku: 8146
Sku: 8146EB

This evidence-based text shows physical therapists how to use a biopsychosocial, systems-based, integrative approach to physical therapy practice.

Chronic disease and pain rates are on the rise globally and are predicted to accelerate, requiring physical therapists to embrace the role of frontline primary care practitioner.

Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine in Physical Therapy provides an evidence-based approach to moving beyond traditional movement interventions alone, by incorporating a comprehensive integrative and lifestyle medicine approach that addresses whole-person health for the successful treatment of pain and illness, and the promotion of health for all populations.

Pillars of integrative and lifestyle medicine include:

  • Stress management and mindfulness training
  • Physical activity across the lifespan
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Sleep and relaxation
  • Tobacco cessation, substance abuse, and recovery
  • Environmental influences on health

Topics covered in this text include:

  • Social determinants of health and disease
  • Psychologically informed physical therapy
  • Coaching, counseling and the science of behavior change
  • Biopsychosocial interventions to promote resilience
  • In-depth descriptions of the six pillars of lifestyle medicine
  • Treatment of special populations
  • Much more
