Handbook of Neurorehabilitation is solely devoted to the rehabilitation management of patients with neurologic disease with investigation and treatment of common medical and neurologically associated complications. The book has 24 chapters divided into five parts and begins with four chapters explaining the "general concepts" that "provide the basis for clinical neurorehabilitation." The next section, entiled "Outcome Measures and the Rehabilitation Process," includes four chapters describing neurologic to behavioral/cognitive to social outcome and disposition. The next six chapters in the third part are a treatment of approaches in motor and motor-associated impairments, cognitive deficits, and recovery with neuropharmacology. Part four describes some of the specific medical complications in neurorehabilitation. The last part is the rehabilitation of specific neurologic conditions that includes stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, movement disorders, and cerebral palsy.
