This comprehensive text has been developed from the considerable clinical and teaching experience of the major topics in treatment of CNS patients. Particular attention is paid to the theoretical bases, the importance of understanding normal motion, kinesiology of everyday movement, and to treatment goals. It provides the therapist with detailed assessment and treatment planning information, and shows how to use this information to develop and enhance practice. The text presents normal components and the related abnormal kinesiological components and relates them to problems that arise in practice. A problem-solving approach is adopted throughout.

The high quality of the content and presentation of this book should place it high on the essential reading list for students and qualified therapists alike.
The authors have...developed their own individual approach for neurological treatment base on clinical practice. This consists of a system for analyzing normal movement patterns...that are important for function, a detailed understanding of impairments that interfere with movement and limit function, and strategies for relating the reeducation of movement and restoration of function to impairments.
The quality of information provided is made accessible by the use of a clear prose style and logical sequencing...of the material. There are excellent complementary illustrations and photographs throughout which clarify the text and as a result the chapters dealing with movement analysis and practical handling are some of the best I have read.
...It is a challenging and rewarding read. -- Susan J. Horne MCSP, in Physiotherapy, August 1999
