Abstract

This book provides physiotherapists with an in-depth understanding of many of the problems encountered by patients with neurological conditions and demonstrates ways of solving them. The emphasis is on the analysis of abnormal pathology and determining appropriate treatment interventions. Problem solving is the key to this approach not only the part of the therapist but also by encouraging the patient's own problem-solving abilities. Treatment of neurological disorders takes place within the wider context of the delivery of health services and, here too, there are many problems to be solved to ensure patients are able to have access to optimal care. What I propose to do is to look at some of these broader issues that currently impringe on the provision of treatment for neurological patients.
