Neurorehabilitation in Physical Therapy delivers comprehensive coverage of the structure and function of the human nervous system. It also discusses normal motor development and motor control, as well as common treatment techniques in physical therapy. In order to be engaging to students, cases open each chapter, with questions about those cases appearing throughout the chapter. The text includes numerous tables, flow charts, illustrations, and multiple-choice board-style review questions and is enhanced by a roster of world-renowned clinical contributors.
Instructors finally have a resource created specifically for physical therapy students taking a neuroanatomy course. Neuroanatomy for Physical Therapy provides readers with an understanding of the anatomical localization of brain function in order to help them accurately interpret the wealth of new human brain images now available. The author, a recognized expert in human nervous system development, includes numerous case studies with patient presentations, and due to its importance in physical therapy, extensive coverage of peripheral nerve damage.
• Content mirrors the standard physical therapy curriculum, freeing instructors from having to use neuroanatomy texts intended for medical students
• Numerous line illustrations, angiography, and brain views from MRI and other imaging modalities
• Author Tony Mosconi has been listed in the Who’s Who of American Teachers (four different years)
