Taking a problem-solving approach to the management and treatment of p eople with neurological disability, this book aims to help the physica l therapist to identify the appropriate treatment program to address p roblems of each individual patient. The emphasis is on the identificat ion of symptoms or problems in relation to impairment and disability r ather than on a detailed "medical" description of neurological conditi ons. A wide range of topics is covered including neuropsychological ma nagement. A section of case histories illustrates how the patient asse ssment and treatment planning and management may be put into practice. Neurological Physiotherapy, second edition, may be used as a student textbook or as a handbook for practitioners who are unfamiliar with th e problem-solving approach to patient management or who are new to wor king with neurological conditions.

Incl. analysis of normal movement, neuropsychological problems & solutions, trmt, longer-term mgmt, case histories

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For those daunted by, disillusioned with or doubtful about an evidence based approach to practice this excellent book provides a refreshing approach to neurological physiotherapy. This is an essential purchase for all physiotherapy departments and should be considered a core text for students. This book provides an excellent baseline from which to acquire the knowledge and skills to work with patients with neurological impairments and disabilities ." Ms Amanda Connell, MSc, MCSP, MISCP Senior Community Physiotherapist, Cork, Ireland., Physiotherapy Ireland Volume 23, No. 1, June 2002, Journal of the Irish Society of Chartered Physi, June 2002
A patient centered approach to the management and treatment of people with neurological disability, stressing the role of the therapist in identifying appropriate treatment programs rather than providing detailed descriptions of neurological conditions.

Features photographs, diagrams, and case histories. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
