The neuro rehab text that mirrors how you learn and how you practice!

Take an evidence-based approach to the neurorehabilitation of adult and pediatric patients across the lifespan that reflects the APTA's patient management model and the WHO's International Classification of Function (ICF).

You'll study examination and interventions from the body structure/function impairments and functional activity limitations commonly encountered in patients with neurologic disorders. Then, understanding the disablement process, you'll be able to organize the clinical data that leads to therapeutic interventions for specific underlying impairments and functional activity limitations that can then be applied as appropriate anytime they are detected, regardless of the medical diagnosis.

- Consistently organized chapters in each section for easier reference
- Behaviorally stated objectives for each chapter
- Glossary (with terms bold-faced at first appearance)
- Patient case scenarios that emphasize the clinical relevance of the content
- "Patient Application" sections in the examination and intervention chapters that progress throughout the chapter and include "contemplate clinical decisions," with guiding questions to stimulate the clinical problem-solving process
- Charts/tables summarizing key information
- Colour photograph illustrating basic and complex concepts, many featuring real patients, including series of photographs that capture sequential movement
- "Focus on Evidence" tables included on DavisPlus that summarize the scientific basis for the principles and techniques described
- Extensive reference lists to facilitate additional research
- A compendium on DavisPlus outlining the most common pediatric and adult medical diagnoses that puts the impairments and functional limitations in context and addresses 1) etiology/pathogenesis, 2) expected signs/symptoms and diagnostic tests, 3) prognosis, 4) medical and surgical management, and 5) a brief summary of five potential interventions that may be part of the plan of care based on expected examination results
