Intended for use by all physiotherapists working in the neurological field, this book shows how to analyze patient problems and select appropriate therapies for each situation. The emphasis is therefore on identification of symptoms in relation to the resultant impairment of movement, rather than on the detailed decription of neurological conditions. Whilst it is important to understand the disease process of, for example, multiple sclerosis, the medical diagnosis has little bearing on the problems arising in terms of functional impairment.
