Product Overview

"Neuromuscular Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM" answers the call to what today's physical therapy students and clinicians are looking for when integrating the "Guide to Physical Therapist Practice" as it relates to the neuromuscular system in clinical care.
As a part of the Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, "Neuromuscular Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM" is edited by Joanell Bohmert in a user-friendly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the "Guide "language, but also parallels the patterns of the "Guide."
In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and imaging is provided. Each pattern then details one to five diversified case studies coinciding with the" Guide" format. The physical therapist examination, including history, systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed.
Sample Cases in Some of the Practice Patterns Include:
-Impaired Neuromotor Development: A child with Down syndrome; a child with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
-Impaired Motor Function and Sensor Integrity Associated with Progressive Disorders of the Central Nervous System: A patient with Parkinson's disease that progresses from stage 1 to stage 5 (presented in 4 cases); a patient with MS
-Impaired Peripheral Nerve Integrity and Muscle Performance Associated with Peripheral Nerve Injury: Apatient with dizziness; a patient with BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo); a patient with unilateral peripheral vestibular hypofunction; a patient with bilateral peripheral vestibular hypofunction; a patient with Meniere's disease; a patient with carpal tunnel syndrome
-Impaired Motor Function and Sensory Integrity Associated with Acute or Chronic Polyneruopathies: A patient with Guillian-Barre syndrome (GBS)
-Impaired Motor Function, Peripheral Nerve Integrity, and Sensory Integrity Associated with Nonprogressive Disorders of the Spinal Cord: A 17-year old patient with C5 SCI; a 40-year old patient with T11 SCI
At long last, Dr. Marilyn Moffat and Joanell Bohmert have created a book that will integrate the parameters of the "Guide," as it relates to the neuromuscular system, into the practice arena, that not only covers the material but also allows for a problem-solving approach to learning for educators and students.
