Maximize mobility skills in impaired patients!Rely on this state-of-the-art resource to help you navigate confidently in both common and complex clinical situations. Step by step, you’ll master the knowledge and skills essential to patient care—from biomechanical and neurological principles and collaborative patient/client goals and therapeutic alliances to the design and implementation of therapeutic plans. Then, you’ll learn how to develop the “out-of-the-box” thinking you need to help your patient’s progress toward greater mobility and independence. Over 700 full-color photographs and illustrations make every concept crystal clear. Special features address the range of issues you’ll encounter in class and in practice, including the variables of real practice in real clinical situations, the most recent evidence for practice, and patient/client care techniques.And, as a bonus, under 'Additional Resources,' you’ll find 55 full-color, narrated video clips from the DVD packaged with the print version. They show clinicians and patients performing the techniques described as in the text.
