The definitive core text in its field, Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is a comprehensive reference covering all aspects of stroke rehabilitation √õ 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 √õ which includes free e-book access with every print purchase √õ 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 survivorÌs 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 that Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation will continue to serve as an invaluable reference for every health care professional working to restore function and help stroke survivors achieve their maximum potential.

Editorial Review(s) 

Praise for the First Edition:

"Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation is an outstanding and unique text that stands out in its emphasis on clinical trials regarding rehabilitation interventions, its comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, and its inclusion of an international perspective. It clearly deserves a spot on your bookshelf, and you will find yourself referring to it frequently. This book not only captures the recent changes in our understanding of stroke - and recovery - but also does so with an impressive cast of specialists... I enjoyed its scope, its evidence-based approach, the breadth of expertise in stroke rehabilitation, and its ability to provide very practical guidance for clinicians. The chapters are clear, a pleasure to read with excellent illustrations, provide practical information, and have up-to-date references. It effectively covers not only stroke basic science, anatomy, and neurophysiology of recovery but also the latest in rehabilitation treatment options, with timely insights into rapidly changing fields such as, for example, robotics...This is an invaluable reference, and I plan on encouraging my colleagues and students to read it."- American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

"This is an important contribution to the clinical literature on post-stroke rehabilitation as it brings together, for the first time, a comprehensive survey of the most important topics. The use of the complete spectrum of care model helps clinicians become well versed with the approach to patient care at a holistic level, and allows clinician-researchers to stay up to date with the latest and greatest discoveries and concepts that are emerging in this area."- Doody's Reviews, 4 Stars
