Summaries
Main Description
A book for the physical therapy student which will train students on how to achieve functional outcomes in patients through neurorehabilitation. Focuses on patients with significant impairments and functional limitations requiring active rehabilitation (for example, stroke, spinal cord injury, etc.) and on presenting information on skills necessary for the patient to function independently in daily life (i.e. transfer skills, wheelchair skills, balance skills). The text progresses from determining appropriate treatment to how to implement treatment to desired result for improved patient quality of life.
