Boost your skills in planning and managing physical rehabilitation! Neuroscience: Fundamentals for Rehabilitation, 5th Edition provides a practical guide to the nervous system and how it affects the practice of physical and occupational therapy. Case studies and first-person stories from people with neurologic disorders make it easier to apply your knowledge to the clinical setting. New to this edition is a new chapter on neuroanatomy imaging. Written by noted PT educator Laurie Lundy-Ekman, this book uses evidence-based research to help you understand neurologic disorders and treat clients who have physical limitations due to nervous system damage or disease.
New to this edition
New Atlas and Imaging chapter includes that combines clinical illustrationMRI and CT images. with gross anatomy images will provide students and therapists with a background for understanding film studies of their patients.
NEW! Updated content reflects the most current research findings.
NEW! Reader-friendly approach converts long, technical chapters into smaller, more accessible chapters.
NEW! Reorganized chapters more clearly demonstrate the progression from the molecular and cellular view of neuroscience to body systems and then to regions of the body.
