Description

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
