Extensively illustrated and easy to use, this practical resource offers clear guidelines and step-by-step sequences for moving and working with individuals with differing levels of paralysis. It serves as both an ideal student textbook and a valuable clinical manual for therapists who see tetraplegic and paraplegic patients.


“This book would be extremely useful for both physiotherapy students and physiotherapy clinicians interested in the rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injuries.”
