Parkinson's disease, the most prevalent hypokinetic movement disorder, is expected to occur with increasing frequency among aging populations worldwide. While we await the discovery of a cure, combining physical interventions with traditional medical interventions can significantly improve overall quality of life. Health Professionals' Guide to Physical Management of Parkinson's Disease fills a void in this area of clinical management by comprehensively addressing the physical management of Parkinson's disease in a single volume.
Written for clinicians, Health Professionals' Guide to Physical Management of Parkinson's Disease will prove to be a useful resource for physical therapists as well as other health care professionals who manage patients with Parkinson's disease. The text expertly distills and blends diverse research-based sources with the author's own extensive clinical experience. The result is a concise manual that provides not just the science but also the clinical application necessary in the selection of physical interventions.
Health Professionals' Guide to Physical Management of Parkinson's Disease is an easy-to-navigate reference for clinicians who do not have the time or the need to read a book cover to cover, but want answers fast. The chapters are written as independent units extensively cross-referenced, and they can be read in any order. Throughout the text, readers will find clinical decision trees, flow charts, and sample forms to guide their selection of intervention strategies. The book contains many user-friendly features:
-Numerous illustrations demonstrate exercise considerations, evaluative techniques, and guidance on implementing interventions.
-The 11 reproducible handouts address safety and compensatory strategies to improve mobility in patients.
-Access to a variety of patient help features—including case examples specific to chapter topics and instructions for handling problems—engage readers and put answers within fingertip reach.
