Published by DemosMed
Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is the new gold standard comprehensive guide to the management of stroke patients. Beginning with detailed information on risk factors, epidemiology, prevention, and neurophysiology, the book details the acute and long-term treatment of all stroke-related impairments and complications. Additional sections discuss psychological issues, outcomes, community reintegration, and new research.

Written by dozens of acknowledged leaders in the field, and containing hundreds of tables, graphs, and photographic images, Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation features:


The first full-length discussion of the most commonly-encountered component of neurorehabilitation
Multi-specialty coverage of issues in rehabilitation, neurology, PT, OT, speech therapy, and nursing
Focus on therapeutic management of stroke related impairments and complications
An international perspective from dozens of foremost authorities on stroke
Cutting edge, practical information on new developments and research trends


Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is a valuable reference for clinicians and academics in rehabilitation and neurology, and professionals in all disciplines who serve the needs of stroke survivors.;History of Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation; Epidemiology; Acute Stroke Pathophysiology and Management; Neuroimaging in Acute Stroke; Stroke Syndromes: Supratentorial; Stroke Syndromes: Infratentorial; Mechanisms and Neurophysiology of Recovery; Functional Neuroimaging; Biological Treatments for Recovery; Aphasia and Dysarthria; Dyphagia; Right Hemisphere Stroke Syndromes; Memory, Executive Function, and Dementia; Sensory Deficits and Central Pain Syndromes; Visual, Oculomotor, and Vestibular Deficits; Hemiplegia and Patterns of Recovery; Task-Specific Training; Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation; Technological Aids for Motor Recovery; Gait; Balance, Ataxia, and Posture; Secondary Prevention of Stroke; Prevention of Deconditioning after Stroke; Medical Complications; Spasticity; Musculoskeletal Complications; Neuropsychiatric Complications; Fatigue and Sleep Disturbances; Malnutrition; Bowel and Bladder Management; Orthotic Management; Complementary and Alternative Medicine; Seating, Assistive Technology, and Equipment; Ethical Issues; Functional Assessment; Predictive Factors for Recovery; A Worldwide Perspective; Levels of Rehabilitative Care and Patient Triage; Stroke in Children; Stroke in the Young Adult; Stroke In the Elderly; Stroke and the Family; Driving; Sports and Recreation; Sexuality; Vocational Rehabilitation; Community Rehabilitation.;"This an important contribution to the clinical literature on post-strokerehabilitation as it brings together, for the first time, a comprehensive survey of the most important topics. The use of the complete spectrum of care model helps clinicians become well versed with the approach to patient care at a holistic level, and allows clinician-researchers to stay up to date with the latest and greatest discoveries and concepts that are emerging in this area.".-- Doody's Reviews 4 Stars
"Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is an outstanding and unique text that stands out in its emphasis on clinical trials regarding rehabilitation interventions, its comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, and its inclusion of an international perspective. It clearly deserves a spot on your bookshelf, and you will find yourself referring to it frequently. This book not only captures the recent changes in our understanding of stroke-and recovery-but also does so with an impressive cast of specialists. This is an impressive and very readable text. I enjoyed its scope, its evidence-based approach, the breadth of expertise in stroke rehabilitation, and its ability to provide very practical guidance for clinicians. The chapters are clear, a pleasure to read with excellent i
