The Comprehensive Neurorehabilitation Update

Cutting-edge strategies, updates, and best practices for clinicians who provide care for patients with CNS trauma and neurological diseases

Patients with stroke, TBI, SCI, and degenerative neurological diseases face significant disruption to so many facets of their lives, and clinicians are left with so many treatment dimensions to consider, that rehabilitation is never simple. These challenges are compounded by the fact that rehabilitation approaches are now in a period of rapid expansion.
