Overview

Never before has this conceptual model of analysis and treatment been presented in one text! This practical text presents a framework for the assessment and treatment of adults with neurological dysfunction. Emphasis is placed on identifying disabilities and their underlying impairments. Readers will learn to understand and assess disabilities and impairments through detailed review of the anatomy of movement, and through discussion of the basic concepts of treatment. Coverage includes the four most common impairments: weakness, balance dysfunction, incoordination, and sensory/perceptual loss. The text's unique problem-solving approach is from the perspective of the physical therapist as movement scientist — readers develop problem solving skills that can be used to assess any patient.
