Description
Neurological Physiotherapy aims to provide an improved understanding of problems commonly encountered by the therapist working with people with neurological disability. It describes aspects of posture and movement difficulties which may occur as a result of neurological damage and gives guidance to help the therapist to plan the appropriate treatment programme for each patient. Using a problem-solving approach the emphasis is on the identification of symptoms in relation to impairment and disability rather than on a detailed description of neurological conditions.

Book Reviews
"For those daunted by, disillusioned with or doubtful about an evidence based approach to practice this excellent book provides a refreshing approach to neurological physiotherapy. This is an essential purchase for all physiotherapy departments and should be considered a core text for students. This book provides an excellent baseline from which to acquire the knowledge and skills to work with patients with neurological impairments and disabilities ."
