Overview

Here is the ONLY text to bridge the gap between current motor control theory and research, and its application to clinical practice. Motor Control prepares therapists to examine and treat patients who have problems related to balance, mobility and upper extremity function, based on the best available evidence supporting the clinical practice. A systems theory of motor control and a clinical or "task-oriented" approach to examination and intervention are presented. The perfect BALANCE of features: / Functional approach provides a practical model of rehabilitation. / Specific examples of theoretical models apply theories to clinical practice. / Drawings, charts, tables and photographs clarify postural control and functional mobility. New features provide added FUNCTION: / Chapter 6 presents factors affecting the control of movement and the types of patients likely to have these impairments. / Upper extremity assessment and intervention techniques are addressed from occupational therapy and physical therapy perspectives. / Laboratory activities and case studies demonstrate key concepts.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Amy S. Both
This is a comprehensive, well-written new book on the systems theory of motor control and its relationship to posture, balance, mobility, and upper extremity manipulatory function. The authors integrate current research on motor control and related neuroscience with their recommendations for clinical intervention. The purpose is to provide a framework that will enable the clinician to incorporate the systems theory of motor control into a task-oriented approach to clinical assessment and treatment. The book also serves to assist in bridging the gap between theory and practice. Motor control is an important and timely topic that is currently changing clinical practice in physical therapy. Although targeted especially for undergraduate and graduate students in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and kinesiology, the book will also be very useful to practitioners who treat patients of all ages with motor control problems. The book includes numerous drawings, charts, tables, and photographs to illustrate the various aspects of postural control and functional mobility. Active learning modules are incorporated into the text to enhance understanding. Each chapter is summarized and contains voluminous current, relevant references. This is an excellent text for both students and practitioners in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and kinesiology. It brings together theoretic concepts of motor control and practical applications that can be incorporated in the treatment programs of a variety of patients with motor control problems. This book will serve to assist in the future development of effective, new assessment and treatment approaches for patients with motor dyscontrol.

Focuses on scientific and experimental principles in neuroscience and motor control, using a functional rather than diagnostic approach. Chapters on theories of motor control, posture, mobility functions, and upper extremity control include case examples of theoretical models, outlines and summaries, and practical experiments and exercises. Contains b&w diagrams and drawings, a glossary, and a postural control assessment form. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
