Over 500,000 people a year are affected by strokes, which leave many with significant disabilities. This book provides practical, hands-on information for all professionals involved in stroke rehabilitation.
This concise, clinically relevant manual will facilitate the reader's understanding of specific as well as general concerns in stroke rehabilitation. The book follows four fictitious patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage, thrombotic stroke, embolic stroke, and hemorrhagic stroke with brainstem, right and left hemisphere, subcortical and generalized presentation. It offers the perspectives of a physical therapist, an occupational therapist, a speech-language pathologist, and a recreation therapist on issues raised by physicians. The focus throughout is on practical experience, such as specific assessment and intervention techniques.
