About this book

This well-crafted text discusses the theory and techniques used by physical and occupational therapists and is a derivative of Dr. Miller's highly regarded reference, Cerebral Palsy. The book is conveniently divided into two sections. The first focuses on fundamental aspects of cerebral palsy management, from understanding motor impairment to evaluating equipment use. The second section presents specific rehabilitation techniques, including neurodevelopment therapy, hippotherapy, and assistive devices. A wealth of tables, algorithms and detailed illustrations helps the reader with the decision-making process for determining what treatment would be most beneficial. With its thorough and clinically-oriented approach, physical therapists who care for cerebral palsy patients will find this book invaluable to their practice.
