1 Jan 2003
Janet H. Carr, MA, EdD
Previously published as "A Motor Relearning Programme for Stroke", the authors have produced a completely revised and updated version of this essential guide to task - and context-specific exercise and training for the optimal functional recovery of stroke patients. The guidelines are based on scientific rationale and the latest clinical research and cover a range of critical everyday actions, while the modern and accessible format with many new photographs and line drawings ensures maximum clarity and practicality. Written by two acknowledged experts in their field, "Stroke Rehabilitation" presents Carr and Shepherd's internationally respected system of stroke rehabilitation. The clear and comprehensive linking of science and clinical practice make this an indispensable volume for physiotherapists, occupational therapists and all those involved in the rehabilitation of patients with stroke.
