Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven U. Brint, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This new handbook provides both general background and specific practical information directed toward the rehabilitative management of common neurological disabilities and diseases.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the clinician with useful scientific and practical information to aid in the rehabilitative care of common neurological problems and diseases. This is an increasingly important field as more therapeutic options have become available and their functional outcome comes under greater scrutiny. The objectives laid out by the authors were quite amply met.
Audience: The primary audience for this book is the clinician or resident in neurology or rehabilitation medicine; however, many parts will be useful for neurosurgeons, therapists, or physicians involved in the care of patients with neurological impairment. Both authors are well-respected neurologists with strong interests in rehabilitation medicine. Many contributors are experienced clinicians.
Features: This book is sparingly illustrated; however, this does not detract from its efficacy. References are plentiful; many are derived from older literature. The latest references in many chapters are from 1990. Generally, the book is comfortable to hold and read.
Assessment: This is an effective and useful handbook that fills out an underrepresented field in the literature. The book is well edited, not overbearing, and though it is somewhat deficient in recent references, most chapters provide an experienced perspective that is quite valuable. Clinicians will find it to be a practical companion.

A text for clinicians who care for common neurological conditions, examining important aspects of the scientific basis for rehabilitation. Five sections deal with the underlying scientific evidence and theory that provide the basis for clinical neurorehabilitation; organizational and social factors that are important to the rehabilitation process, and the available methods for assessing current functional status and predicting outcome; specific treatments available to clinicians, including new concepts and ideas, some of which are in their infancy; the practical management of specific medical problems common to many patients undergoing rehabilitation; and the rehabilitation of specific types of neurological illness or injury.
