This practical guide to neuroscience focuses on the evidence-based information that is most relevant to the practice of physical rehabilitation. Stories written by real people with neurological disorders, case studies, and lists summarizing key features of neurological disorders help you connect the theory of neuroscience with real-world clinical application. You will also find clear descriptions of a complete range of neurological disorders and the body systems they affect. The logical organization---progressing from the molecular and cellular levels, to systems, and then to regions---also makes complex information easy to master. Special features, plus hundreds of full-color illustrations, also give you quick access to clinically relevant information.

Using Environments to Enable Occupational Performance is a unique new text that specifically focuses on how environments (physical, social, cultural, institutional) can be used by occupational therapists to enable occupational performance with all types of clients. This informative text provides a framework to think about how environments fit into occupational therapy theory and practice. Examples of different approaches to occupational therapy intervention involving environments are demonstrated in a comprehensive format. Community settings, institutions, mental health, pediatrics, hand rehabilitation, health promotion, and gerontology are just a few of the areas covered inside. Each chapter contains "real world" scenarios from occupational therapists about how the environment can be used to optimize occupational performance. Review questions are also included that ask the reader to apply the learned knowledge in a variety of settings. These features, along with the shared expertise of contributing authors, are beneficial to both students and clinicians in reinforcing the theory-practice link.

Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides a complete overview of the foundations of various neurological medical conditions and presents a wide array of clinical problems that a physical therapist assistant may encounter in the educational or clinical setting. Darcy Umphred and Connie Carlson, along with 11 contributors, offer a thorough explanation of the PT to PTA delegation process that is both unique and comprehensive. Throughout the pages of Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant the PTA is provided with the necessary tools to effectively interact with and treat patients who suffer from neurological medical diagnoses. This text also covers a wide variety of neurological clinical problems that a PTA may encounter. Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant presents specific examples of tests and measures and interventions that a PTA may use when treating patients with CNS damage. Multiple chapters offer one or more case studies that will aid students and practicing PTAs in the analysis of PTA roles and the delegation of specific tasks, as well as why a PT may not choose to delegate a task. Also included is a brief discussion of selected pathologies and their progressions or complications, which gives the PTA a means to identify contraindications or changes in patient behavior that need to be reported. Features: -Interactive website access that provides the answers to the questions and case studies for each chapter. -A clear delineation of the differences between the frameworks used by medical practitioners and those used by the PT. -Detailed descriptions of tests and measures and interventions used by the PTA. -A focus on interactions between types of movement dysfunctions and intervention selection. -A discussion of disablement and enablement models. The volumes of knowledge presented in this unique and detailed text ensures Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant will accompany the PTA throughout their education and into their career.

"Quick Reference Neuroscience for Rehabilitation Professionals is a concise and quick reference for the practitioner and student who are learning or reviewing the most relevant neuroscience principles supporting rehabilitation therapy. The updated Third Edition continues to meet a need in the rehabilitation profession that has gone unfilled--the ability to break down neuroscience information into the essential principles that can be used to understand neurological conditions and the principles underlying rehabilitation evaluation and practice. Quick Reference Neuroscience for Rehabilitation Professionals, Third Edition provides a quick review of a specific neuroscience concept or critical neuroscience principles supporting a specific rehabilitation intervention. In this era of information overload, this text rapidly and thoroughly provides condensed information in a user-friendly, easy-to-use format for the practitioner to better convey that information to a patient. Dr. Sharon Gutman has divided the text into three primary sections: the first addresses neuroanatomy; the second addresses the function of neurological systems underlying physical, psychiatric, cognitive, and visual perceptual disorders; and the final section addresses clinical neuropathology related to aging, addiction, memory, and the neurological substrates of sex and gender. A specific section describes the common neurodiagnostic tests that therapists do not administer but must have knowledge of when results are discussed at treatment team meetings"--Provided by publisher.

"This book is written for occupational therapists and occupational therapy students. The purpose of this book is to explore and explain how movement occurs from a musculoskeletal orientation. This text does not discuss the influence and contribution of the sensory system, nervous systems, volition, or cognition on the production of movement, although these are clearly vital parts of movement. This text includes descriptions of how joints, muscles, and bones all interact to produce movement. General information about muscles and assessment of strength, as well as joints and assessment of joint motion, are contained in two chapters that will elucidate this idea of movement. There are six chapters devoted to how movement is produced at each joint (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, lower extremity, and posture). Being able to visualize the internal mechanisms of joint movement and to accurately assess observable joint characteristics is an important part of understanding movement. In order to understand how movement is produced, kinesiology concepts are explained with regard to forces acting on the body and how these forces influence not only movement but ultimately our intervention with clients. Because this book is written for occupational therapists, the first chapter briefly explains concepts particularly related to the profession of occupational therapy. Terminology is defined according to Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process as well as International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) terminology"--Provided by publisher.
