About Book

The overwhelmingly good response to the first edition of Neurologic Intervention for P1J)J Physical Therapist Assistants is cause for gratitude. In an effort to make an excellent reference even better, we have completed a second edition based on the advise of reviewers and our physical therapy and physical therapist assistant students. The chapter order now reflects a developmental tendency, with chapters on motor development, handling, placement, and interventions for children before those on adults. We anticipate that the addition of chapters on proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) and other neurologic illnesses would be a welcome addition to this edition.

PNF continues to be a helpful complement to the treatment of patients with neuromuscular disorders; consequently, we sought for experts with expertise and experience to write this chapter. After the expected chapters on stroke, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury, the section on other neurologic illnesses has been added. The chronic and, in some circumstances, progressive character of these other illnesses makes them more difficult to treat. All patient cases have been rewritten in Guide format to facilitate learning and ensure uniformity in recording.

We changed the title of the book after discovering that it was being utilised as a lab manual in physical therapy programmes for neurorehabilitation courses.

We view this as a beneficial application of the textbook, and the renaming reflects its larger appeal. Despite the term change, the importance of the physical therapist assistant's role in the treatment of patients with neurologic impairments has not diminished. In contrast, physical therapy students' use of the textbook should develop their understanding and appreciation of the psychomotor and critical thinking abilities required by all members of the team in order to maximise the function of patients with neurologic deficits. We are ecstatic to be able to include the Evolve website since we believe it will be a valuable resource for professors and students.

The measure of a society's sophistication is its treatment of the young and elderly, the most vulnerable portions of the population. We believe that our ongoing efforts may, in some little way, make it easier to unravel the riddle of directing movement, guiding growth and development, and relearning lost functional skills in order to improve the quality of life for those we serve.
