Steps to Follow: The Comprehensive Treatment of Patients with Hemiplegia

by: Patricia M. Davies
This new edition of a best-selling guide incorporates significant advances in the early and later rehabilitation of neurologically impaired patients.

Ways to regain walking, balance and other normal movement sequences are explained and demonstrated with 750 photographs of patients being treated.
