Physical Management for Neurological Conditions, 5th Edition
Physical Management for Neurological Conditions comprehensively covers the essentials of neurorehabilitation starting with thirteen guiding principles, and a new chapter on clinical reasoning and assessment. It discusses the physical management of common neurological conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s followed by less common conditions such as inherited neurological conditions, motor neuron disease, polyneuropathies and muscle disorders.
Produced by a team of international editors and experts, this fifth edition is the most up-to-date evidence-based textbook available for undergraduate students and qualified health professionals alike, focusing on selecting appropriate evidence-based tools rather than subscribing to any specific treatment approaches. It is a core physiotherapy textbook designed to provide students with everything they need to pass the neurological component of their degree.
