Key features: Cased-based approach focusing on clinical exercise; Multiple case studies comprehensively worked through with summary boxes and discussion questions; Case studies are presented in familiar clinical note-taking format (SOAP: subjective, objective, assessment, plan) where appropriate. Appendices include diagnostic criteria for clinical conditions, guidelines for clinical management, and contraindications for exercise in clinical populations.
