Treatment of the Neurologically Impaired Adult

With the present book,
acclaimed international Bobath instructor and therapist Bente Gjelsvik offers an
evidence-based practice-oriented road map to the assessment and treatment of
patients with lesions of the central nervous system.

Consisting of 238 pages of
accessible text supported by 240 illustrations (mostly photographs of patients
in therapy), this work is the ideal clinical guide for physical and occupational
therapists, for students and practitioners working with neurologically impaired
adults, and for Bobath instructors as well as trainers in physiotherapy in
general. Gjelsvik successfully bridges the gap between evidencebased clinical
practice and theoretical assumptions, developing a clear understanding of the
neuromusculoskeletal system, of motor control, of neural and muscle plasticity,
and ultimately of the structure and function of the organism as a whole.

The
fine balance between theoretical information, clinical relevance, and practical
examples make this an essential book for learning all about the interaction
between the central nervous system, the musculoskeletal system, movement, and
function. Bente Gjelsvik thus improves any Bobath therapist's competency in
achieving the best possible assessment of the individual with neurological
conditions, for best possible results of the treatment.
