Overview

Clinical Applications for Motor Control is a comprehensive text that will help to bridge the gap between motor control/motor learning research and practical clinical applications for physical therapists. This thoroughly updated text is written by a variety of physical therapists with a broad range of clinical expertise areas such as neurophysiology, biomechanics, and human motor control. The case-study format that is applied throughout the text amplifies the principles of motor control research and demonstrates the transfer of information from research studies to clinical settings. Clinical Applications for Motor Control begins with an introductory and historical review of traditional neurophysiologic treatment approaches and new theoretical alternatives. This educational opening will set the flow for the rest of the text as chapters progress into topics such as motor control; learning and development; musculoskeletal considerations; sensory and cognitive systems underlying the production and control of movement; disorders of the control of limb movement; and gait. Throughout the text, five case studies representing common clinical problems are used to facilitate clinical problem solving. This innovative style is geared towards the student who has limited clinical experience, while also serving as a useful reference for the practicing clinician.
