By Robert R. Young (auth.), David A. Gelber MD, Douglas R. Jeffery MD, PhD (eds.)

The many fresh advances within the therapy of spasticity have created a necessity for an up to date quantity committed solely to state-of-the-art optimum therapy innovations for this hard scientific challenge. In scientific assessment and administration of Spasticity, David A. Gelber, MD, and Douglas R. Jeffery, MD, have addressed this desire by way of assembling a finished number of articles surveying the pathophysiology of power neurologic spasticity and detailing its frequently advanced clinical and surgical administration. Written by means of major specialists in neurology and rehabilitation, the booklet covers actual and occupational treatment, splinting and orthotics, electric stimulation, orthopedic interventions, nerve blocks, using botulinum toxin, and novel remedies similar to tizanidine, intrathecal drugs, and neurosurgical concepts. The individuals additionally overview coordinated techniques to the remedy of spasticity and particular neurological illnesses comparable to spinal wire harm, a number of sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy, and demanding mind harm.
Authoritative and state of the art, medical evaluate and administration of Spasticity constitutes ultra-modern definitive medical reference on spasticity, and offers a framework for all physicians and actual therapists to improve potent treatment options for his or her patients.
