Parkinsons disease, the most prevalent hypokinetic movement disorder, is expected to occur with increasing frequency among aging populations worldwide. While we await the discovery of a cure, combining physical interventions with traditional medical interventions can significantly improve overall quality of life. Health Professionals Guide to Physical Management of Parkinsons Disease fills a void in this area of clinical management by comprehensively addressing the physical management of Parkinsons disease in a single volume. Written for clinicians, Health Professionals Guide to Physical Management of Parkinsons Disease will prove to be a useful resource for physical therapists as well as other health care professionals who manage patients with Parkinsons disease. The text expertly distills and blends diverse research-based sources with the authors own extensive clinical experience. The result is a concise manual that provides not just the science but also the clinical application necessary in the selection of physical interventions. The text begins with an introduction to Parkinsons disease and the umbrella of care required in the management of patients, giving readers a clear explanation of medicinal, surgical, assisted, and self-management strategies depending on the stage of disease.

The text concludes with a qualitative and quantitative assessment of gait and includes specific treatment guidelines addressing characteristic gait problems. Health Professionals Guide to Physical Management of Parkinsons Disease is an easy-to-navigate reference for clinicians who do not have the time or the need to read a book cover to cover, but want answers fast. The chapters are written as independent units extensively cross-referenced, and they can be read in any order.
