Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides a complete overview of the foundations of various neurological medical conditions and presents a wide array of clinical problems that a physical therapist assistant may encounter in the educational or clinical setting.
Darcy Umphred and Connie Carlson, along with 11 contributors, offer a thorough explanation of the PT to PTA delegation process that is both unique and comprehensive. Throughout the pages of Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant the PTA is provided with the necessary tools to effectively interact with and treat patients who suffer from neurological medical diagnoses. This text also covers a wide variety of neurological clinical problems that a PTA may encounter.
Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant presents specific examples of tests and measures and interventions that a PTA may use when treating patients with CNS damage. Multiple chapters offer one or more case studies that will aid students and practicing PTAs in the analysis of PTA roles and the delegation of specific tasks, as well as why a PT may not choose to delegate a task.
Also included is a brief discussion of selected pathologies and their progressions or complications, which gives the PTA a means to identify contraindications or changes in patient behavior that need to be reported.
-Interactive website access that provides the answers to the questions and case studies for each chapter.
-A clear delineation of the differences between the frameworks used by medical practitioners and those used by the PT.
-Detailed descriptions of tests and measures and interventions used by the PTA.
-A focus on interactions between types of movement dysfunctions and intervention selection.
-A discussion of disablement and enablement models.
The volumes of knowledge presented in this unique and detailed text ensures Neurorehabilitation for the Physical Therapist Assistant will accompany the PTA throughout their education and into their career.
