This book aims to act as a manual for physiotherapists faced with the challenge of treating patients with tetraplegia and paraplegia. It is written particularly for those who have little experience in this field or who do not have the benefit of working in a spinal unit. The text therefore suggests methods of treatment which have been tried and found valuable for a large number of patients. The book also outlines the rehabilitation programme from the day of the patient's admission as an acute lesion to the achievement of individual maximum independence and includes treatment for children and for patients with incomplete lesions. In addition to new material, other parts of the text have been re-arranged and augmented, for example, a chapter is now devoted to respiratory care, and the sections on psychological re-adjustment have been drawn together. Information on the incomplete lesion has been expanded and now includes a structured analysis of normal movement as a basis for the development of treatment techniques. The chapter on children with spinal cord lesions has been re-written and outlines a method of treatment designed to minimize the development of spinal deformity.

“This book would be extremely useful for both physiotherapy students and physiotherapy clinicians interested in the rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injuries.
