Upper Motor Neurone Syndrome and Spasticity

Clinical Management and Neurophysiology

Garth R. Johnson, Michael P. Barnes

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 264

Spasticity is a disabling problem for many adults and children with a variety of neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury. A practical guide for clinicians involved in the management of spasticity, this book covers all aspects of upper motor neurone syndrome from basic neurophysiology and measurement techniques to practical therapy and the use of orthoses. Surgical techniques are also covered, as well as the particular problems of management of spasticity in childhood. In the second edition of this key text, all chapters have been thoroughly updated, with additional coverage of new techniques and new drugs and therapies, whilst continuing the format that has made the first edition the core text in its field. This guide will be invaluable to physicians, physiotherapists, surgeons, orthotists, clinical engineers and health professionals.

Upper Motor Neurone Syndrome and Spasticity

Clinical Management and Neurophysiology

Garth R. Johnson, Michael P. Barnes

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 328

This is a practical reference and guide for physicians, surgeons, therapists, orthotists, bioengineers and other health professionals involved in the management of a disabled individual with upper motor neurone syndrome and spasticity. It is a thorough review, covering all aspects of management from physiotherapy, seating, and orthoses to the use of drugs. It examines the neurophysiology of spasticity, measurement of outcome, and the newer treatment techniques, such as phenol and alcohol nerve blocks and botulinum toxin injections. More invasive procedures, including intrathecal baclofen and surgical intervention for more complex and severe spasticity, are covered in detail, and the final chapter looks closely at the management of spasticity in children.
