In physical therapy there are various methods available for treating patients affected by a neurological disease, yet the method presented here is the only one to include systematic interventions adapted to the patient’s needs, which are determined by means of a health situation analysis.The book offers practical and applicable information for allied health professionals seeking interventions to help patients function better in their own environment. In addition, this book features updated information on the “van der Brugge method,” focusing on a targeted program to stimulate movement in the elderly with dementia.
