The definitive core text in its field,Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitationis a comprehensive reference covering all aspects of stroke rehabilitation âõ from neurophysiology of stroke through the latest treatments and interventions for functional recovery and restoration of mobility. This second edition is completely updated to reflect recent advances in scientific understanding of neural recovery and growing evidence for new clinical therapies.

The second edition âõ which includes free e-book access with every print purchase âõ continues to provide in-depth information on the assessment and management of all acute and long-term stroke-related impairments and complications including cognitive dysfunctions, musculoskeletal pain, and psychological issues.

It examines risk factors, epidemiology, prevention, and neurophysiology as well as complementary and alternative therapies, functional assessments, care systems, ethical issues, and community and psychosocial reintegration.

With contributions from over 100 acknowledged leaders from every branch of the stroke recovery field, this edition features expanded coverage of key issues such as the role of robotics and virtual reality in rehabilitation. New chapters have been incorporated to cover fields of recent exploration including transcranial magnetic stimulation, biomarkers, and genetics of recovery as well as essentials like the use of medication and the survivorâås perspective. The up-to-date presentation of scientific underpinnings and multi-specialty clinical perspectives from physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, and nursing ensures thatStroke Recovery and Rehabilitationwill continue to serve as an invaluable reference for every health care professional working to restore function and help stroke survivors achieve their maximum potential.
