The third edition of this popular textbook - formerly Physical Management in Neurological Rehabilitation and now renamed Physical Management for Neurological Conditions - maintains its scientific and research base with extensive use of references and case studies. It is the only book for physiotherapists that offers a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of neurological rehabilitation, specific neurological / neuromuscular conditions and the related physiotherapy treatment approaches used.

Important areas which feature throughout are discussed in relation to the different neurological conditions and include:

• a non-prescriptive, multidisciplinary, problem-solving approach to patient management
• involvement of the patient and carer in goal-setting and decision-making (client-centred practice)
• use of outcome measures to evaluate the effects of treatment in everyday practice
• use of case studies to illustrate clinical practice
• scientific evidence of treatment effectiveness

• Additional specialist editor – Dr Emma Stack
• Refined content but with the inclusion of 4 brand new chapters:

• an introductory chapter on rehabilitation in practice
• one on respiratory management
• and two covering self management and falls under the section entitled Skill Acquisition and Learning

• 11 new expert contributors join the reduced contributor team of 31
