You'll want to keep this practical volume within easy reach! Now thoroughly updated, this Third Edition provides an overview of the knowledge and skills required for current practice in the physical rehabilitation of children. Readers will learn to integrate essential information into a physical therapy evaluation and treatment plan. Organized by disability and diseases, then by specialty, the text addresses the most current information on each disability, and presents evaluation techniques and suitable interventions. Unlike other books, this unique guide covers neurological disorders, neuromuscular problems, developmental disabilities, orthopedic and cardiopulmonary disorders -- all in chapters written by recognized experts. Noteworthy in this edition: coverage of orthopedic and limb deficiency, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and assistive devices.
