CHAITALI SHAH
ISBN: 978935270322720181/e

Synopsis

This book is aimed to provide a simple framework for physiotherapy students to perform a straightforward neurological examination.   Neurological examination is used as an investigative tool in patients when a neurological abnormality is found on screening or when an abnormality can be expected from history.   There is no ideal neurological examination technique. There are conventional ways to perform an examination. Most neurologists have developed their own system for examination—a variation on conventional techniques. This book teaches the necessary mental and manual skills for neurological examination.   Assessment of all neurological conditions dealt by the physiotherapists has been included in the book which will be of great use for the users.   This book is written keeping in mind the graduate as well as the postgraduate students of physiotherapy who want to carry out basic neurological assessments. It mainly focuses on basic assessment only not the differential diagnosis.   Scales used for general neurological examination as well as disease- specific scales used by physiotherapists are also included in the book, which will be very helpful for postgraduate students.
