This text provides expert guidance on the therapeutic management of people with functional movement limitations and quality of life issues following a neurological event. From an essential review of basic theory and commonly used intervention strategies to the latest screening and diagnostic tests, plus new treatment approaches for today’s clinical practice.
A problem solving approach helps you apply your knowledge to examinations, evaluations, prognoses, and interventions for movement disorders initially caused by peripheral or central nervous system problems. Included at the end of each section are case examples providing opportunities for the readers to deal with specific movement problems seen in patients. Also included are case studies that use real-world examples to improve problem-solving skills.
