This edition incorporates significant advances in the early and later rehabilitation of neurologically impaired patients. Davies stresses the need to equip the patient for a full life, rather than setting arbitrary goals for functioning in a sheltered environment. Activities are described for correcting abnormal movement patterns and facial difficulties. Ways to regain walking, balance and other normal movement sequences are explained and demonstrated with 500 photos of patients.
