Overview

Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides a complete examination of the foundations of various neurological medical conditions and presents a wide array of clinical problems that a physical therapist assistant may encounter in the educational or clinical setting. Darcy Umphred and Connie Carlson offer a thorough explanation of the PT to PTA delegation process that is both unique and comprehensive. Section one of Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides the PTA with the necessary tools to effectively interact with and treat patients who suffer from neurological medical diagnoses. Section two covers a wide variety of neurological clinical problems that a PTA may encounter.

Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant presents specific examples of tests and measures, and interventions that a PTA may use when treating patients with CNS damage. Each chapter offers one or more case studies that will aid students and practicing PTAs in the analysis of PTA roles and the delegation of specific tasks, as well as why a PT may not choose to delegate a task.

Also included is a brief discussion of the pathology and its progression or complications, which gives the PTA a means to identify contradictions or changes in patient behavior that need to be reported.

The abundance of knowledge present in this unique and detailed text ensures Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant will accompany the PTAs throughout their education and into their career.
Features: A clear delineation of the differences between the frameworks used by medical practitioners and those used by PTs. A discussion of disablement and enablement models. Detailed descriptions of tests and measures, and interventions used by the PTA. A focus on interactions between types of movement dysfunctions and intervention selection. Each chapter includes questions and answers related to the PTA's role in a variety of clinical settings.
