Authors: Intsar S. Waked and Amal A. Alotaibi (Associate Professor of Physical Therapy, Assistant Professor of Medical Genetics, College of Applied Medical Sciences, Almajmaah University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) 
Book Description:
Sickle cell disease (SCD), an inherited hemolytic anemia, is associated with multiple acute and chronic complications such as painful vasoocclusive events, cerebral vasculopathy, priapism, and renal or lung disease. These complications are variable and unpredictable, and can be associated with significant morbidity and poor quality of life. This book covers several areas regarding pathology, diagnosis, complications, signs, symptoms and medical treatments. There are few studies in literature on the role of physiotherapy as a resource to prevent and treat locomotor system disorders, respiratory problems and painful crises in SCD individuals. This book highlights the role of physiotherapy in sickle cell anemia.

A comprehensive and authoritative monograph, this book will be equally interesting to both established researchers and to graduate students interested in both genetics and the physical therapy field. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
