Book description

One third of people after stroke, having survived the first few weeks, return home with significant residual disability, and can therefore benefit from an active, multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme. This is a comprehensive guide to rehabilitation after stroke, in which leading international authorities set out the basic neuroscientific principles that underlie brain recovery, including chapters on neural plasticity and neural imaging, and describe appropriate rehabilitation strategies for the many different functional problems that can arise after stroke. These include movement disorders, sensory loss, dysphagia and dysarthria, problems with continence and secual difficulties, and cognitive disorders. Also covered are measurement of disability and quality of life, assistive technology and vocational rehabilitation. It is therefore an essential handbook and reference for all members of the multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team, including medical personnel, therapists, clinical neuropsychologists and rehabilitation nurses.


Review of the hardback:‘This book will appeal to those specifically interested in stroke rehabilitation, particularly from an academic point of view, but will probably find its way on to more stroke rehabilitation unit library shelves rather than one‘s own personal bookshelf at home.‘

Review of the hardback:'… the key benefit of the volume is its coalescence of thought and data spanning the disciplines involved in stroke rehabilitation. … those of us mired in the detail of our own fields and subspecialties derive from Recovery After Stroke the ability to poke our heads above ground, and see what new ideas and collaborations can be had down the hallway.'

Review of the hardback:'I think it is a good addition to the library of general physicians, neurologists and rehabilitation physicians.'
