Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book would be extremely useful for both physiotherapy students and physiotherapy clinicians interested in the rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injuries.”
Physical Therapy Reviews; 2008; vol 13; No 2
Linda A. Yasukawa
This edition is an update and expansion of the fourth edition, which was published in 1991. Chapter 3 was rewritten to reflect current psychological approaches to treating persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). Other topics added or updated include: functional electric stimulation; hip guidance orthoses; patients with lesions above C4; aging; posture and seating; recent advances in medical management of increased tone; and recent research on impact of childhood SCI on spinal deformity. The hardcover is an improvement from the fourth edition. The purpose is to provide students or inexperienced physical therapists with the basic principles of a rehabilitation program for persons with SCI. The audience is physical and occupational therapists. The rehabilitation program in England is outlined from day of admission with acute lesion to the achievement of maximum independence. The chapters are clearly marked and begin with a list of chapter contents and page numbers. This feature helps the reader find specific information quickly. An index, a current reference list, and a further reading list are also included. The best and most useful parts of this book are the illustrations and step-by-step instructions for patients and therapists with regard to functional and mobility skills. I would recommend this book for inexperienced and experienced physical therapists and occupational therapists. For therapists in the U.S. it should be an adjunct to reading Somers' Spinal Cord Injury: Functional Rehabilitation (Appleton-Lange, 1991) because of the different medical approaches between the U.S. and England. This book is better at addressing acute care and equipment issues forthis population in the U.S. Also, the Somers' book and Nixon's Spinal Cord Injury: A Guide to Functional Outcomes in Physical Therapy Management (Aspen, 1984) are better at addressing goal setting and functional outcomes.
