Now in its third edition, this trusted clinical guide enables both the busy practitioner and student to review or to learn about a range of pathologies, conditions, examinations, diagnostic procedures, and interventions that can be effectively used in the physical rehabilitation of older people. It presents a broad overview of age-related physiological changes as well as specific professional discipline perspectives.
Organized into eleven distinct and interrelated units, the first unit begins with key anatomical and physiological considerations seen with aging which have significant impact on the older person. The second and third units go on to review important aging-related conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular/neurological systems respectively. Neoplasms commonly encountered in older people are the focus of the fourth unit; while aging-related conditions of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, integumentary and sensory systems are presented in units five through seven. Unit eight highlights a range of specific clinical problems and conditions commonly encountered with older patients.
Critically, all of these units emphasize important examination and diagnostic procedures needed for a thorough evaluation and stress interventions that can be of significant benefit to the older patient. The ninth unit presents select physical therapeutic interventions that are especially important in managing rehabilitative care. Key societal issues related to aging are discussed in the tenth unit. Finally, the concluding eleventh unit focuses on the successful rehabilitation team that includes both professional and non-professional caregiver members.
"The strengths of this generally excellent book lie in its thoughtful presentation of current approaches to clinical rehabilitation in older people." Reviewed by Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine 2015, Feb 2015
