The importance of physical therapy for neurological disease cannot be underestimated. Stroke, for example, is the second leading cause of death worldwide, and its global effect is considerable, based on disability-adjusted life years. With an aging population, the risk of stroke increases exponentially with age, and accordingly, the number of patients increases as well. It follows that specially tailored neurorehabilitation regimens are crucial in helping patients return to the workplace and maintain their independence.
This concise and practical work, created by authors with decades of experience in the practice and teaching of physical therapy, serves that purpose well, with its emphasis on the targeted use of training equipment to match the patients' exact needs.
