Overview

A Doody's Core Title 2012

Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is the new gold standard comprehensive guide to the management of stroke patients. Beginning with detailed information on risk factors, epidemiology, prevention, and neurophysiology, the book details the acute and long-term treatment of all stroke-related impairments and complications. Additional sections discuss psychological issues, outcomes, community reintegration, and new research.

Written by dozens of acknowledged leaders in the field, and containing hundreds of tables, graphs, and photographic images, Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation features:


  • The first full-length discussion of the most commonly-encountered component of neurorehabilitation
  • Multi-specialty coverage of issues in rehabilitation, neurology, PT, OT, speech therapy, and nursing
  • Focus on therapeutic management of stroke related impairments and complications
  • An international perspective from dozens of foremost authorities on stroke
  • Cutting edge, practical information on new developments and research trends

Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is a valuable reference for clinicians and academics in rehabilitation and neurology, and professionals in all disciplines who serve the needs of stroke survivors.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: David A Brown, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive book describes the basic neuroscience and anatomy of stroke, the physiology of neural recovery after focal injury, and the effectiveness of clinical interventions for stroke from a multidisciplinary and international perspective.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical clinical guide to evidence-based stroke rehabilitation built on a foundation of basic neurophysiology and neuroscience. This book is the first to take such a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to post-stroke rehabilitation care and it is much needed now that the neuroscience underlying neural recovery and plasticity has developed so rapidly. This book meets the objectives by providing over 45 chapters of information across the spectrum from neurophysiology and pathology through psychological and social adaptations post-stroke.
Audience: It is appropriate for practicing clinicians (physical and occupational therapists, neuropsychologists, nurses, physicians, etc.) and the multidisciplinary clinician-researchers who are interested in the most contemporary information on stroke rehabilitation.
Features: The book covers a wide range of topics in stroke rehabilitation including medical conditions, neurophysiology of recovery processes, key neurologic impairments, important complications, stroke care systems models, and psychosocial and community integration models. The chapters on treatment of neurologic impairments deserve special mention as they address a variety of important concerns that clinicians might encounter in patients during the stroke rehabilitation process. The structure of the book is consistent with the ICIDH model of rehabilitation, addressing health condition, impairment, disability, participation, and contextual factors. The extensive bibliographies at the end of each of the 47 chapters provide a rich literature review from the key papers in each area. Some chapters appear to rely more on basic data figures from individual studies rather than on summarizing figures, but this may be reflective of the immediacy of the information that is provided.
Assessment: This an important contribution to the clinical literature on post-stroke rehabilitation as it brings together, for the first time, a comprehensive survey of the most important topics. The use of the complete spectrum of care model helps clinicians become well versed with the approach to patient care at a holistic level, and allows clinician-researchers to stay up to date with the latest and greatest discoveries and concepts that are emerging in this area.
