A revised chapter on the role of rehabilitation after HIV infection and a new chapter on balance disorders are highlights of the third edition of this book, which updates the 1990 edition in several pertinent areas. The book provides a comprehensive discussion of neurological rehabilitation structured into three sections: theory, management of clinical problems, and special topics and techniques. The book's structure makes it useful in both didactic and clinical settings. The purpose is to provide the practitioner and the advanced student with a multitude of problem-solving strategies that can be used to tailor treatment approaches to individual clients. The book provides a firm foundation of knowledge in many areas related to neurological rehabilitation. Practitioners and advanced students in physical and occupational therapy are the primary audience for the book. Speech-language pathologists and rehabilitation nurses will also benefit from access to this comprehensive reference. The 48 contributors provide a multidisciplinary approach to the problem of individuals with neurological disorders. The format, with chapters on theoretical foundations followed by chapters on clinical management and special techniques promotes a problem-solving approach to assessment and treatment of the client with neurological disorders. This book is a comprehensive reference that is highly recommended for allied health professionals in academic and clinical settings.
