New York/Stuttgart – Physical Therapy for the Stroke Patient, recently published by Thieme, covers all the issues that physical therapists must deal with in this critical period: assessment of patients' abilities; care during the acute phase; early mobilization; effects of medication; risk factors; ethical questions; and much more. It includes an information-packed chapter entitled "Optimizing Functional Motor Recovery after Stroke," by Janet Carr and Roberta Shepherd, pioneers in the field and the first to correlate motor learning and stroke recovery.  This manual provides complete guidelines on how to examine and treat the patient, the dosage of physical therapy required, and the key differences between early and late stage rehabilitation after stroke.

For all physical and occupational therapists who must answer the question "How much therapy will help my patient?" this book provides clear, well-informed answers. Not only will it increase therapeutic skills and confidence, but it will also expand the readers' knowledge of medical issues and long-term outcomes for the post-stroke patients in their care.
