Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact due to an ageing population. During the last 20 years, neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of ‘evidenced based medicine’ with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a work in progress and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of the field. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective.
This new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Neurorehabilitation provides an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the subject as well as a clear perspective on how (and why) to approach treatment decisions on an individualized basis. The book has been thoroughly updated to reflect novel important developments in the field and includes new chapters on vocational rehabilitation, self-management strategies in neurorehabilitation, and music supported therapy in neurorehabilitation. This indispensable book will be of great interest to rehabilitation physicians, neurologists, and allied health care professionals who look after patients requiring neurorehabilitation.
